Their own plan doesn´t even come close to balancing, of course, and they´re not interested in other ideas to get there. The first Republican amendment they torpedoed yesterday called for increasing federal spending at a clip of "only" 3.4 percent per year over the next decade, rather than the major acceleration that Democrats have advanced. The second proposed making it more procedurally difficult to pass a budget that does not balance with ten years. Watch as each Democrat-aligned committee member votes in lockstep against these provisions. Make no mistake,

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
So much for their election promises.
Gotta maintain the plantation.
Part of the communist scheme to bring this nation under it’s wing.
The whole RAT party is infested with them.
In the real world, failure to do your job usually does not end well. We really need accountability amendments and specific performance clauses for our elected officials. Annual performance reviews,just like in real world work situations, should be mandatory.
There isn’t one reporter with the gumption to ask why they are against a budget much less a balanced budget? Hell, lets all live like that and see what would happen.
>>rather than the major acceleration that Democrats have advanced.
unfortunately, republicans, with a few exceptions, have just as bad a track record. The record acceleration in the deficit and debt under Obama only masks the previous record spending and debt under Bush....I honestly don’t think there are more than 5-10 people in all of congress that a) care b) are willing to do anything about it or c) even understand why it matters.
Get elected, and then use taxpayer money to do or say ANYTHING to get reelected by spending money we don’t have is the name of the game...until the money actually runs out, nobody is going to do anything about it.
Hell, under Bush you had many prominent Republicans arguing with a straight face that the debt and the deficit don’t matter (or at least it didn’t matter when they were doing it)....
This debt/deficit/spending problem is shaping up just exactly like the housing/mortgage/subprime bubble...we all know its going to end badly, we just don’t know when exactly.
We can think Cheney for this gem:
“You know, Paul, Reagan proved deficits don’t matter.”
and now Republicans want to be taken seriously on deficit reduction.
