Debt Plan Ideas Draw Scorn of Liberals and Tea Party
"WASHINGTON By putting deep spending cuts and substantial tax increases on the table, President Obama's bipartisan debt-reduction commission has exposed fissures in both parties, underscoring the volatile nature and long odds of any attempt to address the nation's long-term budget problems.
