Squeezing even more money out of a weak economy whose growth was virtually zero in the last three months of 2012 -- and that forecasters say will grow by no more than 1 to 2 percent this year, is the height of irresponsibility.

In his meetings this week with Republicans on Capitol Hill, Obama once again outlined the...
