Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill is calling President Obama's budget a starting point to begin the conversation between Democrats and Republicans.
The Democratic senator says she is anxious to see the Republicans' budget plan in the House. But McCaskill is also criticizing the GOP for focusing on the discretionary domestic budget, which, she says, is only 18 percent of the budget.
