    I wonder what the word "discretionary" means? There is a choice between a plan that won't ever get passed(Ryan's plan is a pipe dream, and the CBO destroyed it), or one that could get passed and would improve things to a point we have not been in in a whole lot of years. SS/Medicare need to be looked at and fixed, but doing it in a rush by making things more expensive for every one is not a solution.

    I LOVE how the conservatives here can read the list of riders and still support the GOP's maneuvers. Let me give a counter-example:

    GOP controls the white house and senate. Democrats control the house. It's crunch time, the government is about to shut down because there's no budget. The Democrats wont budge, they put forth a budget that is of a number the GOP doesn't particularly want but might grudgingly accept. Except there's some riders:

    1) No funding for any program that features abstinence-only sexual education
    2) No funding for any program that tries to in any way persuade women to not have abortions
    3) No funding for any educational program that teaches any alternative "theories" to evoluti0on
    4) No funding for any energy source that isn't carbon-free
    5) Implements a universal health care system by appropriating funds to Medicare for all citizens
    6) No funding for any background check process for gun ownership. Does not remove the requirement for these background checks, so no more checks are done and therefore no more guns are sold if they would require those checks.
    7) No funding for gitmo or detainment of any prisoners currently housed there

    etc, etc.

    Conservatives would be protesting in the freaking streets. GOP does it? They get cheered on by most of the Limbaugh crowd.

    "but [obama's] fiscal blueprint largely ignores his own deficit commission's plea to slash huge entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare"

    leadership, anyone?

    Wow, I never said otherwise, and you took out the part where I actually addressed that. How wonderfully honest of you....

    Actually, go back to 2007. Dem's had control of congress. Appropriation time came around for Iraq. Dem's included a plan to pay for the appropriations. Repubs blocked it, saying dem's where playing politics with out troops.
