Reid now saying he wants to raise the debt hike by $2.7T and cut by $2.2T so the cuts will not be LESS than the hike...this is contrary to what he's been asking for the last couple of days...he senses the Speaker is weaker after a run of strength.

The reason of course is so he can cut ground from under Boehner-Cantor who would have gotten their cuts MORE than the debt hike and no new taxes.

MUCH less, because of baseline budgeting, which fraudulently claims as cuts what are actually only mythical cuts to mythical projected increases.
