Red state Dems freaking out over Pres BO's spending!
A few days ago, we posted that Dems would "freak out" over Pres BO's deficits in 2010.
I guess that it's already happening in 2009.
According to POLITICO, there are concerns in the US Senate:
"Moderate and conservative Democrats in the Senate are starting to choke over the massive spending and tax increases in President Barack Obama’s budget plans and have begun plotting to increase their influence over the agenda of a president who is turning out to be much more liberal than they are."
Over at The House, Captain Ed explains that the "Bue Dogs" are concerned too:
"Have conservative Democrats in the House had enough of Deadbeatonomics?
Congressional Quarterly reports that almost 50 members of the Democratic caucus may start blocking key points of the Barack Obama agenda.
Not surprisingly, they hail from districts Obama failed to carry in 2008"
So what's going on?
First, the numbers are staggering.
We are not just talking about deficits.
We are talking about trillion dollar deficits going on forever!
We are talking about a federal budget deficit of 10% of GDP!
Second, the Dems are starting to come to terms with the reality that they now own the economy.
It was fun to blame Bush. They can't do that anymore! The Dems will own this economy in the 2010 midterms!
