  •  Then they don't bring the (0+ / 0-)

    bill to a vote. It's a budget written by a republican, if no Republicans even sign on as a co-sponsors, the bill is dropped, and we laugh and point at the Republicans.
    If the bill comes to the floor, the Democrats can easily defeat it, and we point and laugh at Republicans who either voted to cut Medicare and Social Security (great for upcoming elections) or vote against it, looking like hypocrites.

    Save the Earth! It's the only one that has chocolate.

      ...that's waaay too subtle for the MSM to cover.

      With Faux Noise and the Wall Street Urinal running cover for the Republicans, all the Republicans have to say is "OMG look at this bill Obama's party wanted us to vote on..." and the eight-second sound bite on the Nightly Evening News(tm) is over.

      And Middle American thinks it's the Democrat's idea.

      And really, if this is the best "strategy" the Democrats can come up with, we are well and truly screwed.
