Spend your own $3.1 trillion budget

President Bush on Monday proposed a $3.1 trillion budget for fiscal 2009 that Democrats said was more of the same -- big deficits, big tax breaks and big increases in defense spending -- while even Republicans conceded that Congress is likely to ignore its major provisions.

Bush's spending plan would push the federal deficit near and perhaps beyond the record $413 billion of fiscal 2004.The deficit would grow partly because of the roughly $150 billion economic stimulus plan agreement that Bush and House leaders agreed to last month, which includes rebates for most taxpayers.

Tell us what would you do with $3.1 trillion.
