Like malfunctioning clockwork, President Barack Obama's new budget proposal has arrived (a little late) to provide us all with some comic relief. Aptly referred to as a "fantasyland" by POLITICO's David Nather, President Obama's budget hikes taxes, expands federal interference in education, increases the minimum wage, and bails out another federal agency.

Yes, the majority of press outlets systematically blackout stories and seem to be in collusion with one another in the painting of the national news picture. Yes, it's unfair and yes, it sucks - hard.

Senator Mike Lee to Speak at FreedomWorks “New Fair Deal” Action Day
WHAT: Senator Mike Lee (UT) was officially added to the speaker’s agenda for “The New Fair Deal Action Day,” where he will address over 1,000 FreedomWorks activists at the US Capitol to launch The New Fair Deal.
