Why propose budget with built-in deficit?

During fiscal year 2012, the federal government collected approximately $2.45 trillion in tax revenue. President Barack Obama has unveiled a $3.8 trillion spending plan. This would give the country a shortfall of $1.35 trillion.

Since we borrow from China approximately 40 cents on every dollar, should we send our politicians to the Beijing College of Economics or Harvard Law School?
