Barack Obama unveiled the last budget of his presidency Tuesday, a record $4.1 trillion plan that is dead-on-arrival in Congress but could shape the 2016 White House race.Still, the budget provides Obama with one of his few remaining opportunities to fashion national and Democratic party priorities.Obama said the budget was a statement of intent, saying it would invest in innovation and strengthen national security. The budget would also invest more than $19 billion in cybersecurity, a 35 percent jump designed, Obama said, to tackle the issue "in a more aggressive way".The budget also provides Obama an opportunity to draw sharp contrast with Republicans, as the November general election looms.
