Gordon Brown made a bid for the pensioners' vote, by announcing a council tax rebate of £200 for pensioners.
He's also promising free off-peak bus travel for over 65s, regardless of where they live (at the moment it's provided at the discretion of local councils).
Mr Brown also tried to woo first time home buyers, by increasing the Stamp Duty threshold to £120,000.
And, while increasing duty on cigarettes, beer and wine, he froze petrol tax until September.
For details of all these changes and how they affect you, see the links on the right hand side of this story.
This year's budget is particularly crucial for Mr Brown, as it's widely expected that Tony Blair will call a General Election in a few weeks' time.
So the final verdict on this year's budget will belong with the voters, rather than professional politicians.
