  •  Yes, it was released this morning. (0+ / 0-)

    Woodward discussed it on Meet the Press and released it today.  He says it was a White House offer, and shows what the White House was willing to do to get a "Grand Bargain."  

    As for entitlement cuts, look at the White House's proposed sequester on Medicare and Medicaid.  Also look at the bottom of page 2 for the White House proposal on further deficit reduction.

    Remember, this is a White House proposal, not a Republican proposal

    Woodward used it to show what the White House was willing to do last year in order to get a deal.  He suggested that it provides a possible outline for what the White House is willing to do now.  It's certainly not a definitive statement of what the White House is willing to do now.  But given the President's position of a "balanced" approach (the same language he was using in 2011) it's not unreasonable to believe that this is a possible outline of what the President is willing to do.
