President Barack Obama's $4.1 trillion budget proposal has been condemned by top Republicans as a "progressive manual for growing the federal government," The Hill reports.

"Under the president's vision, what we spend on interest on our national debt by 2022 will surpass that which we spend to protect and defend our nation," House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price said.

And House Speaker Paul Ryan commented: "This isn't even a budget so much as it is a progressive manual for growing the federal government at the expense of hardworking Americans."

The Hill also reported that House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady has tagged Obama's spending plan as "clearly about promoting his liberal legacy instead of securing America's financial future."

GOP lawmakers are so determined to quash the budget proposal, the House and Senate budget committees won't even invite Obama's budget director to pitch the plan and will write their own joint budget resolution.
