What are the populist objections (from both sides of the political spectrum) to the current US budget?

  • $1.1tn spending package backed by both parties in Dec '14 to avoid government shutdown, but characterised by populist rebellions on both sides of political spectrum.
  • Conservatives angry about Obama's immigration policy (which shields millions of unauthorised immigrants from deportation).
  • Liberals angry about provision that helps Wall St. by easing derivatives rules.
