Charles Krauthammer this evening sounded off on President Barack Obama’s $4 trillion budget plan, saying that Obama knows it won’t pass.

“It’s not a real document,” Krauthammer said, calling it a political and ideological document instead.

“It’s a way to present liberal budget choices in a way that’s completely unacceptable but a way to frame the debate in the future,” he said.

Krauthammer remarked that Obama says the U.S. is in prosperity, yet he presents a plan with a half-trillion dollar deficit.

He said that the plan should be ignored by Congress.

“Let the Republicans start from scratch,” he said.
