Reactions to Obama's budget

From NBC's Mark Murray
Here's House Minority Leader John Boehner: "Filled with more reckless spending and more unsustainable debt, the President's budget is just more of the same at a time when the American people are looking for Democrats in Washington to listen and change course."

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor: "The President's budget spends more than any other in history, creates the largest deficits in history, and imposes the largest tax increases in history - at a time when our country can least afford it. Small businesses and job creators simply cannot afford the massive Obama tax increases included in this budget and be expected to hire more workers."

And here's House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "President Obama has approached this budget with equal commitment to economic growth and fiscal responsibility. I look forward to examining the president's proposal to freeze spending and believe waste can be found in all departments and agencies -- including the Defense Department -- so it too must come under scrutiny. We will continue to fully support our veterans and our men and women in uniform and their families, but curbing military contractors' wasteful practices must be part of our efforts to restore accountability, transparency, and fiscal discipline to the federal budget."
