Senate GOP ponders ceding power to President Obama

There are 89 comments on the www.politico.com story from Feb 27, 2013, titled Senate GOP ponders ceding power to President Obama. In it, www.politico.com reports that:

Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8.

The five- page document, which has the tacit support of Senate GOP leaders, represents a remarkable shift for the party. Having railed against Senate Democrats for not passing a budget, Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional “power of the purse” for the last seven months of this fiscal year.

When crucn time comes, no one to blame but nobama!! LMAO
The GOP has sent many budgets to the senate....nothing from them in 3 fkn years. Obstructionists!! Time for nobama to quit show boating and get to work.
According to Bob Woodward, is how President Obama strong-armed sequestration into the Budget Control Act of 2011, and why the president today bears responsibility for finding a way out of the problem he created.
Blame and false claims.....the only demorat agenda since 2000
That's what happens when you get your news from TV.

This article is only about one program, and includes state funding.
As always, you are wrong.

But, good effort. I award you a D-, for making the effort.
Go for a higher D, stop getting your thoughts off TV.
I refer to total Federal spending in a state, to add to its economy.

The "red-states" are largely heavily subsidized by the 'blue states.' There are a few exceptions; but on the whole, I am your DADDY, punk...

No, they're not.

They are all members of the Democratic party.

NONE of them are members of the DSA.

NONE.

Not even the self described socialist Bernie Sanders (Vt) is an offical dues paying member of the DSA.

If you're going to deny reality, it's hard to have a rational conversation.

I could just a easily claim Bush was a Fascist and that 50% of all GOPasaurs are also members of the American Nazi Party.

<quoted text>Not so. Most Americans blame the Republican-led House, as well they should.
so, when Democrats had supermajorities in both houses and the presidency, how do we explain that failure? How is it that the Democrat majority Senate and Presidency and Administration are "powerless" against the House? Where is the rally call of Americans telling the House to run with Obama's "great ideas"? What's the plan? Why doesn't Obama lay out this brilliant plan in a clear concise way? Borrowing more and spending more is not a plan for success. Attacking law abiding gun owners, the Boy Scouts and promoting Gay marriage and amnesty seem like odd money/time wasting distractions from the more important budget/economic focus we need. Just sayin'
