GOP, Dems bash Obama budget plan

It looks like nobody's too keen on President Obama's new budget plan, including President Obama.

"The offer that the president made to Speaker Boehner and which is incorporated in the president's budget is not the president's ideal approach to our budget challenges," said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

And for once, everyone in Washington agrees. Of course the plan includes tax hikes – a non-starter for Republicans.
But the president is also calling for cuts to Social Security and Medicare - a non-starter for his own base.

So does this new proposal stand a chance or is it a waste of time?

Outfront tonight: Hugh Hewitt, Host of the nationally syndicated Hugh Hewitt radio Show and Jim Kessler, Senior Vice President and a co-founder of Third Way.
