    It is a general proposal with no specifics as where the cuts will be and how much. Means nothing without specifics

    There are more specifics at the site I referenced. It is actually very detailed for a framework, if you take the time to read it.

    Specifics in writing... not more Obama platitudes.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I did the link. It does not list specific numbers for specific programs. It is more general terms so Obama has no responsibility to be held to specifics.

    It is not a budget proposal. Do you know what framework means?

    Obama provided a very detailed framework (in writing), based on the Simpson-Bowles report, for Congress to flesh out the exact amounts, for specific programs.

    When it comes from Obama? Yeah... it means platitudes. You know what "Money talks bull**** walks" means?

    So it is more posturing from Obama. The gang of 6 has a real proposal.

    Yep, based on Obama's framework that he provided. I am glad you approve!

    No based on the Bowles-Simpson Commission's recommendations

    Largely yes, Obama based his framework on much of the Bowles-Simpson recommendations. It would seem you read the source I provided. I am impressed you did that ptif.
