Obama budget seeks boost for military, domestic programs

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama will call for a 7 percent rise in U.S. domestic and military spending in his budget that would end caps known as ‘sequestration,’ the White House said on Thursday, setting up a new source of conflict with Republicans in Congress.

Obama intends to announce his budget plans during a meeting with congressional Democrats in Philadelphia later in the day.
