Calling someone's bluff only works if they are bluffing. I get the idea the
Republicans aren't bluffing, the Democrats know it, and arent about to pick a
fight they'd lose.And yes, the only way this can be classified is as
a Republican win. The Democrats had better start getting used to losing.
Agreed xscribe. Many will see this as a 'victory' for Republicans.
And yet, the national debt DOUBLED under thier watch. While
ignoring their broken promises. *'How the House GOP promise to cut
$100b became $32b' - By Luke Russert - NBC - 02/03/11 'However, when
taking a closer look at the budget numbers, the actual savings found in the GOP
plan equals $32 billion.'
If the dems don't like it, they should call the reps' bluff. One thing is true,
in my opinion: Reps know how to fight, and sometimes fight dirty, and the dems
don't know how to fight at all. However, it's easy to see this is the tact
taken by the reps to try to force the dems to do whay they (reps) want. The $4
billion in this first round, as the story suggests, are things the President
already wanted to eliminate, yet the reps act like they are doing something
special. Why not do the $8 billion and give two more weeks to negotiate? I
think we all know why!
