The Republicans are throwing around a new catch phrase (“We have a spending problem not a revenue problem”, anyone?) with their “Cut, Cap and Balance” proposal. Even with an overwhelming majority of Americans rejecting the Republicans’ handling of the debt negotiations…. will the President cave and take McConnell’s plan– one that cuts and provides no new revenue, something he’s previously said he needed included in the deal? We’ll talk about it.

We’ll talk to Ezra about his article from today– where he breaks down why McConnell’s plan might be the best bet for Republicans. And we’ll see what the Founder of Tea Party Nation thinks of the ”all spending cuts and no revenue” plan. Sure to be another lively discussion you won’t want to miss.
