MR. CARNEY: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the White House. I know that you have already been well briefed on the President's budget by an all-star cast of presenters over in the Old EOB. I just wanted to be available to you to answer questions on presumably other subjects, although I can answer questions on the budget, as well, but probably not as well as they did.
