Fun fact about the President's $3.1-trillion budget proposal: It may kill more American soldiers, but it saves money—and trees! How, you ask? From the LA Times:
In a cost-saving gesture, the government for the first time did not provide free copies of the four-volume proposal to Congress, instead releasing it online and charging $200 per printed copy ordered through the Government Printing Office.
Glad somebody's finally taking a stand against government waste.
