    The wingnuts haven't offered their own proposals because they don't have any. The only thing they can do is whine like schoolgirls.

    C'mon wingnuts, where are your proposals?

     

    In a Capitol meeting with House Speaker John Boehner Thursday, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner submitted the Obama administration’s proposal for addressing medium term deficits, and avoiding across the board tax increases and spending cuts at the end of the year.

    Scour the various outlets for Democratic policy ideas and you’ll find plenty of proposed Medicare cuts. President Obama’s 2013 budget, for instance, includes hundreds of billions in Medicare cuts (see pages 33-37), and caps the program’s long-term growth at GDP+0.5 percent. More recently, the Center for American Progress released a 46-page proposal for cutting Medicare by almost $400 billion.

    The perverse Republican strategy is demanding what the Democratic position should be on Medicare. Not what Republican position Democrats should agree with, but what the Democrats' own offer should be.

    Republicans really don't have any ideas on how to trim spending on Medicare. They have, more or less, a plan to transform it, but not one to cut spending from the existing program. Of course, part of the reason for that is Obama himself has endorsed numerous cost-cutting ideas -- many of which wound up in the Affordable Care Act, which means that Republicans have to oppose them.

    No one is shocked.

    We didn't vote for this horse's potoot.

    A leopard doesn't change his spots.

    Picked up right where he left off.

    Geitner's proposals not only offered no spending cuts but HAS INCREASED SPENDING!

    The Republicans laughed at him as they should.

    Obama is the president he is supposed to lead, if he was a leader and not a despot then he would lead.

    He's dictating the terms like a dictator would.
