Whoa nelly, the man is serious now....

 

This freeze will require painful cuts. Already, we have frozen the salaries of hardworking federal employees for the next two years. I’ve proposed cuts to things I care deeply about, like community action programs.

Still, I’m willing to look at other ideas to bring down costs, including one that Republicans suggested last year: medical malpractice reform to rein in frivolous lawsuits.

Members of leadership in the chamber, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (D-Ky.), have said that Democrats' attempt to change the rule is “a power grab.”

This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.

 

NRO

As I recall, Sputnick brought New Math to our generation. Major fail!

 

Personally, I voted for major insurmountable gridlock in the last election.
