Democrats in the Senate have finally put together their first budget in four years.
The Hill reports it includes nearly $1 trillion in new taxes, but it still doesn't balance the budget.
Meanwhile, conservative media outlets continue to find examples of government waste.
CNSNews.com reports the National Institutes of Health has given grants of $1.5 million to find out why three quarters of lesbians are obese, but gay males are not.
According to the Washington Times, The National Science Foundation is spending $250,000 to study pictures of animals in National Geographic.
Moreover, despite the recent federal budget cuts, PJ Media reports the government has advertised for nearly 2,600 new jobs in just the last week-and-a-half.
Critics say these are clear signs there are still unaddressed wastes the government has yet to curtail.
