Obama to propose changes to Medicare and Social Security in new budget

(CNN) - President Barack Obama's upcoming budget will include proposed changes to Social Security and Medicare plus some new tax increases, changes that are an effort for the president to reach a deficit deal with Republicans, according to senior administration officials.

The budget will include an offer Obama made to House Speaker John Boehner in December, officials said. That proposal included $400 billion in savings to Medicare over 10 years.

    We already know what Boehner is going to say about the compromise proposal. He's on record saying "no compromise", not now, not ever.
