Doug, on over at Outside the Beltway, has a good post taking the GOP to task for not walking the walk and coming out with any actual ideas on what they’d like to cut to follow through with the promises they made to take back the majority this last cycle.
At some point, the GOP is going to have to put specifics on the table if their professed commitment to budget cutting is going to be taken seriously. So far, the only Republican who’s put forward a specific plan of any kind is Wisconsin’s Paul Ryan. While Ryan’s Roadmap For America’s Future isn’t perfect, it has the virtue of being more specific than anything anyone else in the GOP has come up with.
I wont be holding my breath for any real movement on this from the GOP as a group. We’ll assuredly get some individuals with some ideas, probably ones that have no chance of passing for the most part. One can hope…
