Main Topic Obama, Republicans Bring Out the Budget Knives 26 MIN, 3 SEC

This week, Republicans plan to set records with proposed spending cuts. Today, President Obama offered what he's calling a "responsible alternative." It hits hard at programs dear to Democrats — to provide increases for education, infrastructure and clean energy. It also raises some taxes. Republicans call it an "abdication of leadership." But it's just the beginning of a process that could lead to a government shutdown if there's no compromise. Is either side really making hard choices? We look at the early maneuvering and ask why neither side has yet to mention Medicare, the military, Social Security and the long-term deficit.

When political protests have led to arrests by the LAPD, Rocky Delgadillo and other recent LA City Attorneys gave defendants the chance to work out a deal—to pay fines for disturbing the peace, for example, rather than going to jail. Current City Attorney Carmen Trutanich will have none of that. He’s insisting on trials and pushing for jail time for 14 protesters against Arizona’s restrictive immigration law and nine others who supported the Dream Act by stopping traffic on Wilshire Boulevard.
