No Time For GOP To Cave
House Speaker John Boehner referred to the White House’s latest proposal as a “la-la-land offer.” Administration spokesman Jay Carney countered, calling a GOP plan “magic beans ... fairy dust.”
With that out of the way, maybe they can get serious. Especially Mr. Obama, whose most recent excuse for a plan — huge tax increases, huge spending hikes, and no serious entitlement reform — is nothing less than a reprise of his last risible budget plan, which got nary a vote in the Senate.
“La-la land,” indeed. If this is his idea of a serious offer, the GOP may be in a stronger position than it thinks. This is no time to cave.
