President Obama talks about his proposed budget and raises money for Democratic Senate candidates on Tuesday.

In the late morning, Obama travels to Powell Elementary School in Washington, D.C., to tour a classroom and make a speech on the fiscal year 2015 budget his aides will be delivering to Congress.

Like most presidential budgets, the Obama plan is dead on arrival at Capitol Hill. But it does outline Obama's political platform, and can serve as a blueprint for Democratic candidates in this fall's congressional elections, especially on the issue of income inequality.

The Obama budget is expected to call for more investments in education, infrastructure upgrades and job training.

Congressional Republicans will likely oppose new spending programs, instead backing tax cuts and reduced regulations.

In the afternoon, Obama turns his attention to foreign affairs - including Russia's military intervention in Ukraine - by meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

At night, Obama travels to a private home in McLean, Va., to speak at a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
