While we're on the subject of Senators and common sense, Jeff Sessions -- the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee -- has a modest proposal for President Obama: Since the White House has essentially tossed out the 2012 budget it introduced two months ago in favor of a nebulous new "vision," why not draw up...a new budget to codify and flesh out this new framework? If Obama is going to cynically and dishonestly savage Paul Ryan's concrete budget plan for political gain, the least he can do is offer a tangible alternative. How about it, Mr. President?
Oh, that's right. The president has already announced he's (again) delegating the hard work of governing to (another) bipartisan committee, this time led valiantly by The Vice President of the United Stazzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
UPDATE - You don't say: Well over half of the president's new proposed "savings" come from higher taxes, not the spending cuts he promised on Wednesday. Some people will gripe that this study was conducted by Goldman Sachs -- a big, evil Wall Street corporation that of course would lie about Obama. After all, they've funneled massive political donations to...oh wait.
