As promised, the Democrats are preparing a budget that will cost $4.1 trillion over the next decade, including $3.5 trillion in new spending ––“the largest spending increase in American history,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

Of course, there’s no money to pay for all this largesse, and making the “rich pay their fair share,” as the Dem’s canard goes, won’t even come close to funding it.
