Republicans need to make the argument about what the argument is about. If the problem is debt and deficit then the solution must address this problem. A solution is a budget that comes into balance, which Obama's never does. Everyone who has balanced a check book, understands the need for a budget to balance.
That is what Republicans should be talking about rather than revenue and budget cuts. They have passed a bill in the House that brings the budget into balance; not is is Reid's or Obama's turn to do the same. This is the point they should be making.
