WASHINGTON, March 4 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will propose an expansion of popular tax credits for middle class and working poor Americans on Tuesday in a fiscal 2015 budget designed to serve as a blueprint for Democrats in this year's congressional elections.
The budget, which would also create automatic retirement accounts known as IRAs for some 13 million workers, has little chance of getting enacted.
But it codifies the president's policy priorities ahead of the November race, in which Democrats hope to keep control of the U.S. Senate and Republicans hope to expand their majority in the House of Representatives.
GOP position extended, people are still dying from cancer all cancer treatments should be halted.
cars wear out, changing oil doesn't work
has managed to avoid going to war 5 times where the GOP insisted military intervention was required. And everyone of them has been solved without the U.S. losing one soldier or spending one dollar. Thank God we have adults in charge now.
Wow another solution without invading and spending 8 trillion dollars. Another example of why the GOP policy position of ready, fire, aim doesn't work.
I would say this is an understatement. It is really a catch 22. If you are willing to enlist in the military you are mentally ill by definition.
Democrats called for state Rep. Lawrence Lockman’s resignation after blogger Mike Tipping chronicled Lockman's public statements since the 1980s in a blog post Tuesday.
Among other declarations and protestations concerning the IRS, HIV/AIDS and homosexuality, Lockman, then president of the Pro-Life Education Association, said in a letter sent in 1990 that he didn't see why rape shouldn't be acceptable if abortion is legal.
"If a woman has [the right to an abortion], why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman?" Lockman wrote. "At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t [in most cases] result in anyone’s death."

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — In an effort its spokesman has described as "outreach to rednecks," the Kentucky Baptist Convention is leading "Second Amendment Celebrations," where churches around the state give away guns as door prizes to lure in the unchurched in hopes of converting them to Christ.
As many as 1,000 people are expected at the next one, on Thursday at Lone Oak Baptist Church in Paducah, where they will be given a free steak dinner and the chance to win one of 25 handguns, long guns and shotguns.
The goal is to "point people to Christ," the church says in a flier. Chuck McAlister, an ex-pastor, master storyteller and former Outdoor Channel hunting show host who presides at the events as the Kentucky Baptist Convention's team leader for evangelism, said 1,678 men made "professions of faith" at about 50 such events last year, most in Kentucky.
In Louisville, he said, more than 500 people showed up on a snowy January day for a gun giveaway at Highview Baptist Church, and 61 made decisions to seek salvation.
Over 10 knife-wielding assailants stormed through a railway station in south-west China on Saturday, killing 29 and injuring 143, in what officials said was a terrorist attack by ethnic separatists from the far west of the country.
Four of the group were shot dead by police and a fifth was captured after the group stabbed and slashed people at random late on Saturday at the Kunming train station in Yunnan province. The remainder are being searched for. Officials say if the separatist had access to guns like they would have in the United States over 8,000 would have been killed.
