Mike Steel said Obama's proposals on Thursday "will rise or fall on their own merits," suggesting a GOP response was not needed.
That's all anyone could ask for. If Reps do this, good for them and Obama.
That was my first reaction.
You know the strategy with this right? No response by the reps means 2 things IMO
1) The dems can't claim the reps are trying to "fight against their job package" as they won't have a critical response to it
2) It puts the onus 100% on the president to ensure his plan will succeed.
