What would Speaker Boehner say ...

by Andrew C. McCarthy

… if President Obama promised to propose an annual budget that would hold spending increases down to $352 million, and then plopped on the Speaker’s desk a proposal that — once carefully examined — turned out to increase spending by $38 billion? (I won’t even go to $61B or $100B.)

Would Boehner be saying the difference was no big deal? Would commentators be saying, hey, “Let’s not fly off the handle, the Obama budget isn’t as bad as it sounds”?
