    Obama's budget is out and he's spending money like a lottery winner in Vegas. As far as I can determine only one government agency will see a budget cut.

    Department of Commerce, down 12.8%

    Education Department will show lower spending, but only because of lower interest rates on loans.

    Otherwise, it's SPEND, SPEND, SPEND. Here's some of the cash cows:

    Dept. of Labor, up 59.1%
    Environmental Protection Agency, up 55.6%
    Transportation Department, up 31.0%
    Dept. of the Interior, up 21.9%
    Treasury, up 15.2%
    Energy, up 13.8%

    Are we talking about a cut below last year or are we talking about a cut in the rate of increase?
