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!

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.

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.
