    our attempts to get this budget under control are not confined to bba, nor are they limited to political demonstrations of principle

    boehner's house, for example, DID pass hr1

    the senate has moved SQUAT

    the president is gutlessly SILENT

    meanwhile, a bombshell, fyi:

    ryan, our BUDGET CHAIR, is gonna go public TUESDAY

    Republican budget: GOP budget would revamp Medicare and Medicaid - KTXL

    FOUR POINT FOUR TRIL!

    MAJOR ENTITLEMENT REFORM!

    ALL THREE---SOCIAL SECURITY AND BOTH M'S!

    now, THERE'S leadership!

    because when the BUDGET CHAIR gets it thru COMMITTEE (which he will), his position becomes gop IMPRIMATUR!

    demagogue THAT, dems

    how many kids have we killed today?

    seeya at the polls, progressives

    in CALIFORNIA

    and NEW YORK

    your point? didn't it NEED to be escalated, according to the generals? isn't the War on Terrorism the only war we should be fighting?

    Re: Republican senators push for balanced budget amendment

    The GOP has never come close to balancing a budget, likewise DEM's, not in modern history, or since 1835
    It is claimed that Clinton pulled that particular rabbit out of the hat, but detractors using their own accounting methods dispute it.
    Their sincerity in such matters is questionable.

    With the support of the right who put all their support behind Patreaus. They wanted the surge and they got it.

    Resurection is a wonderful thing. Every couple of years after the right has screwed the pooch they re-emerge and are pure again. But the left is always the same. How handy for the right. It's like collective amnesia.

    The GOP leadership does know its voter base, gotta give them credit for that....
