This is what happened with the RSC bill:
In an effort to embarrass Republicans by having them approve a budget that makes deeper cuts than Ryan’s proposal, Democrats voted “present” on the Republican Study Committee bill. Initially, 124 Republicans were prepared to support the measure offered by the conservative RSC, but several switched their votes when it appeared the bill might pass.
Now read it again and ask yourself:
Why were they afraid? Who were they afraid of?
The Republican party…again…has shown that it is not really serious about limiting government. It is only interested in appeasing the “Tea Party” (whoever that is)…any ACTUAL cutting of the budget makes them run with fear.
And the Democrats…having suspected it…now know it.
