So, we are headed for a government shutdown because the White House is offering to cut spending including mandatory spending, aka entitlements, by $ 30 billion through the end of this fiscal year, but the GOP wants Dems to pick from "their menu" aka the CR, and does not accept these newly proposed cuts. Basically, they want Dems to only agree to cuts from non-defense discretionary spending. Aren't they the ones saying we need to tackle entitlements? Aren't they the supposedly serious deficit reducers?
