Monotonically increasing budgets

Veronique de Rugy has more grizzly numbers on Obama's sham budget freeze.

A snippet I had not yet heard: the portion of the budget he wants to freeze grew 24% in the last year. That's on top of a 53% increase in that portion over the Bush years, so it's being locked in after nearly doubling. And that assumes, of course, that Congress plays along with this freeze, and that Obama finds some other way to fund all the goodies and give-aways and pane et circenses he pitched yesterday.
