Earlier today the Senate killed the “cut, cap and balance” bill that was passed in the House. So now the wrestling match over the debt cap and the national budget has to move on to something else. But what, exactly?
The “gang of six” plan certainly seems to have won the most praise from Democrats, including President Obama himself, but is that really even a plan? According to a spokesman for “gang” member Dick Durbin what’s been released so far “is not a final agreement” but rather “a framework for what could become a plan.”
Senator Jeff Sessions agrees, noting that it’s little more than a bullet list of talking points.
The Democrat narrative on the debt debates is that Republicans are being uncompromising and unreasonable. But how do you compromise when the other side doesn’t even have a plan? When the other side puts nothing to paper from which you can even begin analysis and the formulation of a deal?
