Why the "except" with President Obama's plan, and no "except" with the Republican plan? Are you under the mistaken impression that the Republican plan to increase the debt ceiling along with 2 Trillion in cuts doesn't include an increase in the debt ceiling? Are you that blind that you can't see your own double standard?
Pres Obama: Raise the debt ceiling and lower the deficit by 4 Trillion.
Republicans: Raise the debt ceiling and lower the deficit by 2 to 2.5 Trillion.
Obama cuts the deficit more. No "except" about it.
