Are we here at DKos falling for the typical media tunnel vision and bait switching?
Kos, the Dems gave in on the sequester and more budget cuts. You call this steely resolve?
Not to mention this is just another short term, lousy CR. And the Senate gave in on more SNAP budget cuts in their version and, and, and....... all the other hidden stuff.
This is why although I believe in a lot of Democrat values, I refuse to call myself a "Democrat" As far as I can tell, the only thing they did right was not give in to the Repub overreach. Just imagine how frustrated the so-called "moderate" Repubs are, knowing how close they were to almost total Democrat caving only to have the crazies overreach.
Unless Dems go back to the drawing table and demand a realistic budget, what we have we won, even if they get the gov going again. Just more of the same suffering, sequester and all.
The Republicans already won on the CR — in one graph
Still, the bottom line is that Republicans have been so successful at making Obamacare concessions the issue that Democratic concessions on spending have gone almost unnoticed.
