  •  If the Ryan budget gets challenged (8+ / 0-)

    ... Republican positions inevitably fall back to "Well, it's an opening negotiating position."  Odd, isn't it, that they're not willing to look at the Progressive Caucus' budget in the same way?  If Republicans can put out their fantasy wish list, why can't Democrats?

    I would never expect the president to support the Progressive budget, but why can't he just say he supports the Senate Democrats' effort and tell Boehner to go do his job?

    •  whoa....... (7+ / 0-)

      The Progressive Budget is actually a sane offering. Let us not engage in false equivalencies.

      As to your assertion about a wish list, yes, why don't we have an extreme wish list so that the Progressive Budget looks modest? Why? Because.......Democrats are complicit with the Republicans and the banksters.

        ... but in the world of the Beltway its tax hikes on the very wealthy and big stimulus programs are about as unlikely to happen as Ryan's voucherizing Medicare.  So in that sense, yes, they are equivalent as beginning negotiating positions.  Assuming any good-faith negotiations were ever going to happen, which I do not.
