You want "balance" yet you have refused to draw a line in the sand and say "that is balance". I'm wondering why Obama came out with a new proposal on Monday because it makes it look like he is negotiating with himself and that is both bad politics and bad policy. Boehner needs to send a plan to CBO for scoring and then we can take a look at it. That will require detail and force Boehner's hand. Right now Obama has nothing to talk about with Boehner so he needs to stop trying.
