    That's great. It's something the Democrats should have done. Perhaps Obama's call for more transparency (and the administration has increased transparency in many areas) is being heard by the Republicans.

    We will have to wait and see. Certainly this has not been done before by any congress.

    On a serious note, (and I realize it's only been a few days...) do you feel like many of the changes being made, or that will be made in the next few weeks/months will be because we're actually about to see real change or will most of it end up just being meaningless political posturing and oneupsmanship?

    On a side note, are there supposed to be hyphens in "oneupsmanship"?

    I don't know there are many of the pubbies who are only interested in reaquiring power. Do they understand that the Tea Party fired the dems and they will be fired too if they don't really cut spending?

    We will be watching closly and holding their feet to the fire.


    They have said they will stop earmarks, not much money but good stylistically. They have promised to put discresinary spending back to 2008 levels, that would be a good start. I wonder if this will cause a veto by Obama?

    They need to defund the inplimentation of obamacare also.

    Wait. What? Mr. back room with the now exempt unions and public employees? That guy? Or do you mean the guy who had the same back room discussions with the democratic delegation at the WH? him?
