(NECN/ABC) - Whether it's healthcare, education or clean energy, the President's agenda, along with the massive budget needed to pay for it, is huge. And so will be the fight to get it passed in Congress. "I realize that passing this budget won't be easy," President Obama said. "Because it represents real and dramatic change, it also represents a threat to the status quo in Washington." Saturday, the President took on powerful Washington lobbyists. "I know they're gearing up for a fight as we speak," Mr. Obama said. "My message to them is this: so am I." He singled out everyone from oil and gas companies to banks and insurance companies -- industries getting tax breaks or payments for programs like Medicare that the president wants to cut. "Every time you make a cut, you're guaranteed to see a fight," Dean Baker of the Center for Economic Policy Research said. "And he's got a lot of big ones for this." Mr. Obama's fight won't be any easier with Republicans in Congress. Most are unhappy with the budget's proposed tax increases and the fact its projected to drive the federal deficit to $1.75 trillion. "The issue really comes down to this: where is the restraint in spending?" Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) said. "Regrettably, his budget falls far short of his inspiring words," Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) said.
