    Obama offered a plan that cuts trillions in spending, and adds $1 trillion in new taxes.

    the GOP said no.

    the GOP says no..to everything with Obama's name on it.

    Obama, GOP trade debt plan demands - Yahoo! News

    The White House says Obama has agreed to roughly $1.7 trillion in spending cuts and wants tax increases to fill out the rest of a plan to increase the debt ceiling long enough to get the country through 2012, when Obama and most lawmakers are up for re-election.

    President Obama made the case Wednesday for slowing the rapid growth of the national debt while retaining core Democratic values, proposing a mix of long-term spending cuts, tax increases and changes to social welfare programs as his opening position in a fierce partisan budget battle over the nation’s fiscal challenges.

    Mr. Obama said he would meet his $4 trillion deficit-reduction target by cutting spending across a range of government programs, from farm subsidies to federal pension insurance.

    Still no specifics of where the cuts are and how much or where he is raising taxes and how much. This is a speech not a plan
