Here’s everything you need to know about the latest proposal by Democrats to reduce the national debt by $3 trillion, half of it cuts (including Medicare), half of it revenue increases, and it’s the second paragraph of the Reuters story:
Republicans rejected the Democratic initiative.
Any questions? It doesn’t matter what Democrats do, Republicans are going to block it, period.
Poll after poll shows Americans want a combination of tax increases and spending cuts to rein in the national debt. Republicans refuse. Maybe that’s why Congress has a 9% approval rating. Go figure.
