    Why would you neglect to include this in your OP assertion?...

    " If Republicans want to cut Medicare, let them propose the cuts. If they want to raise revenue through tax reform, let them identify the deductions. If they want deeper cuts in discretionary spending, let them settle on a number. And, above all, if they don稚 like the White House痴 preferred policies, let them propose their own. "

    Where is the GOP proposal?

    Again, the Republicans haven't proposed anything. They've been trying to force the White House into the position of making the initial proposal for both a tax increase and spending cuts, because the combination is politically toxic. Bohener is a scumbag who's been playing politics with this thing since the election.

    That must be an exhaustive process.

    Well, there was a Romney-Ryan budget proposal which was more than we have had from Obama in 4 years.

    Obama loves to compromise at the expense of the American people.

    Wait a minute..... didn't Romney-Ryan just lose an election? Now you want to adopt their proposals? Why bother with elections?

    So the left demands a GOP plan, and one is pointed out, and the left still doesn't have a plan to counter with. I did not say I agreed or disagreed. Just pointing out there is a GOP budget proposal and there is no DNC budget proposal to start with.

    <Republican aides are circulating their summary of the White House痴 opening bid on the fiscal cliff. They池e circulating it because they believe it fleshes out Speaker John Boehner痴complaint that 鍍he White House has to get serious. Above all, they池e circulating it because the president isn稚 offering them anything in his opening bid.>


    <We池e seeing two things here. One is that the negotiations aren稚 going well. When one side begins leaking the other side痴 proposals, that痴 typically a bad sign. The other is that Republicans are frustrated at the new Obama they池e facing: The Obama who refuses to negotiate with himself.>


    <If Republicans want to cut Medicare, let them propose the cuts. If they want to raise revenue through tax reform, let them identify the deductions. If they want deeper cuts in discretionary spending, let them settle on a number. And, above all, if they don稚 like the White House痴 preferred policies, let them propose their own.>

    Look what we have here. Another Democrat saying elections have consequences. How many times do you have to say it before you're happy?

    If the consequences are a improving economy and better outcomes for all, why do you care how many times I say it?
    GDP growth is already near 3% and rising steadily. The GOP budget proposals will send us into recession or worse.
