REPUBLICANS AND BLUE DOGS COULD MAKE THEMSELVES USEFUL...:

Blue Dogs push to go further than Obama spending freeze (Walter Alarkon, 02/08/10, The Hill)

Blue Dog Democrats want Congress to go further than President Barack Obama’s proposal to freeze spending in next year’s budget.

The group of House centrists will soon introduce a bill capping discretionary spending at specific levels. The move would challenge their leadership and the president, who are balancing concerns with the nearly $1.6 trillion deficit in 2010 with those who say government spending on job creation is the way out of the recession.


...by giving the UR and congressional leaders the credibility they lack in the realm of Defense spending and push for cutting it back to under 3% of GDP.
