GOP reacts to Obama's 2012 budget proposal

President Obama is expected to release his 2012 budget proposal Monday, but not without push-back.

Republican members of Congress are already criticizing some of what is expected to be included in the President's budget. Senator Jeff Sessions (R) Alabama is a ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and has already prepared his budget counter-proposal. Sen. Sessions talks to American Morning's Kiran Chetry about the budget debate.

    Watch out, stand back, and put on your rain suit! The mud balls are getting ready to fly. I am sure that our "elected children" are biting each other to tell us how wrong this plan is and that ONLY their plan will work! And we will be listening to the yea's and no's for the next century while they continue to take our country down the toilet.

    Social Security and Medicare are big items for potential tax cut enthusiasts. Go behind the costs of Medicare to the abuses of the medical and related industries. Reducing abuses and insurance companies paperwork for people, hospitals and doctors plus prompt payment to same. General interference in medical care by insurance companies also pose a threat. Working on these areas would allow lower costs to Medicare. Moreover if you get people back to work you increase the tax base and people can afford healthcare, support for medicare and Social Security.
