There are no spending cuts committed to by the Democrats. They want it their way or they won't play. I hear all the talk of compromise, but the Democrats don't even understand the meaning of the word, at least the President doesn't. His 'give backs' are nothing, they are all for show and tools to use so they can blame it all on the Republicans. Obama has refused to own the spending, lack of budgets and terrible economy for the past four years and it apparently looking for a way to blame the next four on someone else. Why? Because he knows it won't get much better, but he will have gotten his way.
He wants to remake this country, but what he wants it to become is not what the American people will want or enjoy.
