(FOX NEWS) President Obama will unveil a budget Tuesday that drops earlier proposals to cut future Social Security benefits and seeks new money for infrastructure, education and jobs training, part of an election-year push in which he'll seek unity among Democrats rather than compromise with Republicans.
But Obama's almost $4 trillion budget plan is likely to have a short shelf life.

Instead, they will skip ahead to the annual appropriations bills for 2015, relying on new spending "caps" set by December's budget deal that provide $56 billion less than what Obama wants in 2015.
