Charles Cook, the well-known political analyst says, "The package was so aggressive that it allowed virtually all Democrats and potentially a decent number of liberal and moderate Republicans to feel fairly comfortable to attack it. There is a lot of ammunition in there." And while a dozen Democrats supported Sapling's budget 2 years ago, NONE have stepped forward to support yet more of what they now recognize as utter nonsense. Also, McCain and Chafee have come out against the current plan, and Chafee in fact has joined Dianne Feinstein in wanting to present legislation to PREVENT more tax cuts. Bottom line is that the GOPers DON'T have the votes and Sapling's proposal in DOA in the Senate.
