No deal yet as possible government shutdown looms - Yahoo! News The press is clearly siding with the Democrats on the Budget show down, reporting as in this report indicating that somehow it is the Republicans fault the Democrats won't get serious about cutting the Budget. The Democrats don't want any cuts and want to spend us into oblivion. The claim that because they NOW will agree to 33 billion in cuts does not somehow change the fact they won't agree to any meaningful cuts. Claiming that, as in years past, when the dems did it, one can not bring up issues like the EPA, which Obama has made to powerful illegally, in the budget discussion is a red herring designed to couch the debate in terms the Dems think they can win. The Fact the report indicates Obama thinks he is safe is further proof these people just don't get it.
