Submission + - Senate Democrats Sequester Replacement Bill Adds Billions to Deficit (yahoo.com)

RoccamOccam writes: White House-backed legislation in the Senate to replace $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts would raise the deficit through the end of the budget year by tens of billions of dollars, officials said late Wednesday as the two parties maneuvered for public support on economic issues.

So, as pointed out on townhall.com, 'their "deficit reduction" plan entails defense cuts, new tax hikes, and adding to the deficit. No wonder these guys have avoided committing a budget to paper for the last four years.'
