    You may be surprised, but I agree with that. Too many middle-class folks get caught up in that. It's a tax policy that didn't work, so out it goes.

    I agree. A statuatory limit on spending can be overriden by another piece of legislation. It's just gives the rightwing a chance to save face by saying "See, we cut spending" while they warm up their govt credit cards.

    Obama said he would veto their plan if it reaches his desk. That doesn't sound like praise to me

    It needs to be reformed, not destroyed.

    I think the GOP learned their lesson in 2006. They will get back to conservative principles and the tea party will be a big influence.

    Then why are the republicans, once again, ready to agree to tax increases in exchange for a promise to cut spending in the future? The current proposal does not identify one cent of spending cuts
