(Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s budget will call for an increase in U.S. domestic and military spending that would end spending caps known as ‘sequestration,’ a White House official said, setting up a new source of conflict with Republicans in Congress.

Obama intends to announce his plans during a meeting with congressional Democrats in Philadelphia on Thursday.

The fiscal 2016 budget, which the White House intends to unveil on Monday, would fund a host of programs that Republicans are unlikely to support.

It is the latest salvo by the Democratic president lobbed at a Congress controlled by the opposition party and follows a defiant State of the Union address last week that critics said betrayed an unwillingness to seek compromise.
