Factbox: Proposals in Obama's $3.99 trillion annual budget

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama unveiled his fiscal year 2016 budget on Monday amid pushback from the Republican-controlled Congress over many of his policies.

Here are some of the proposals in Obama’s budget, many of which focus on economic mobility for low- and middle-income earners.
