Dems Feign Outrage Over Not Addressing Budget

As Obama appears ready to support a plan not to increase taxes on January 1 (and perhaps even a very limited reduction in payroll tax cuts), many Democrats are feigning outrage that we are not "addressing our long term budget deficit." These Dems, like "moderate" Mark Warner, who was on CNBC today and supported all of Obama's $3.5 trillion in new spending over the past two years, must have been sleeping since he's been in the Senate.

At least he's consistent on favoring tax increases, just as he did when he was Virginia governor.
