Obama Calls Budget 'Roadmap For Creating Jobs'

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is pitching his budget proposal as "a roadmap for creating jobs."
    
Obama announced his $3.9 trillion fiscal 2015 budget Tuesday that would boost taxes on the wealthy and expand tax credits for workers.
    
He said the budget reflects a choice for Americans - whether to protect tax breaks for wealthy Americans or grow the economy. Republicans say the proposal spends too much on government programs.
    
Obama made his remarks at a Washington elementary school that provides full-day preschool for children starting at 3 years old. It's an example of the type of universal preschool that he's proposing but has not been embraced by Republicans in Congress.

    A Spokane business owner says enough is enough after finding human feces in front of her doorstep three days in a row. The incidences happened at Neat Old Stuff located at 3rd and Bernard. The shop's owner, CP Phare, has been in the same location for the last decade and says suspicious activity has ramped up in the last year, but nothing like what's been happening over the last few days. "There's like surprise packages usually two-to-three times a week,"
