#1 It's a lie. They're pretending it's 'politicians' when IMHO the singular form of the noun is more appropriate.

It's not as if we have a real budgetary process we could use if he wanted to.

#5 Harry Reid said today that he will not allow the Plan B to come up for a vote in the Senate, blaming Republicans' refusal to compromise. Buttwipe.

#8 I disagree with the notion that GOP cannot force dems to cut spending: all they have to do is not pass an increase to the debt ceiling. The GIvernment will be force to only spend what comes in. The dems won't last one missed GIvernment check cycle. Of course that requires the GOP to stick together and play hardball. So off the cliff we go.
