Gulf coast Democrats will howl of taxing the oil companies, but Reid has them in his pocket.
Reid is reacting to Paul Ryan's appearance on Meet the Press where he threw up his hands and said let the Sequester happen, which everyone in DC knows wounds the military the most.
The GOP was insane to agree to the 2011 Budget Control Act in the first place. ALL entitlements were "exempted" from the debate, which was simply madness.
The GOP should out-maneuver Reid and up the ante.
The House needs to get its act together and develop their own OODA loop (for observe, orient, decide, and act) to run at high speed to drive the agenda.
