GOP Freshmen Come To White House Demanding Obama’s Deficit-Reduction Plan

With President Obama and Congressional leaders mired in behind-the-scenes deficit negotiations, a group of House GOP freshmen came to the White House this morning to publicly express their frustration and demand the president put forth a written plan outlining his proposal to reduce the deficit.

“We are coming down to crunch time. We need your plan… show us and show the American people what your plan is,” Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y., told reporters, and a few curious tourists, outside the White House today. “There was no written proposal for $4 trillion, it was all verbal… We need to see from the president, in black and white, what are your cuts, where are your increases in taxes. Let’s put it in writing so there can be no confusion as to where you stand.”

The group of roughly 20 freshmen have sent two letters to the president asking for his written proposal and today accused Obama of all talk and no action. “This president has done nothing but sit around and talk. Press conferences do not result in a plan,” said Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Ark. “We need something that the CBO can score and that we can analyze as a plan.”

…Responding to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who yesterday described the legislation as “Duck, Dodge and Dismantle,” the freshmen today said the president’s inaction amounted to “Punt, Pass and Kick.”

Hah! Oh, beauty!

    Yay! Hold the feet of President Putz to the fire! He may whine about not being able to golf and/or solicit campaign funds, but ignore him.
