    Whenever you read in the news that the Democrats are lashing out against President Obama, it is a clear sign that they are about to rubber-stamp a Republican plan-- and they are hoping to blame it all on the Pres.  This is especially true when you see Harry Reid's name on it.

      plan when it doesn't touch entitlements and all of the republican demands have been "deep cuts in entitlement programs"?  It just boggles my mind.

        This plan cuts trillions of dollars from the budget without raising any revenues.  It will disrupt the operation of the Federal Government under President Obama.  It is a Republican plan because it weakens a Democratic President.

      •  because there are 2 trillion dollars (0+ / 0-)

        In cuts to discretionary spending, no cuts to defense, and no new taxes?

        Looks pretty republican to me...
