White House spokesman Jay Carney roasted reporter Mara Liasson who asked whether entitlement reforms would be in the president's budget:

"Mara," said Carney to NPR reporter Mara Liasson, "the way you phrase that question makes me think that you're still working on a typewriter or something. It's available online. The proposal is there."

Carney then would not confirm that entitlement reforms will actually be in the president's forthcoming budget proposal. 

"I'm not going to predict the budget," said Carney.
