Good question…

…from the Rude Pundit, who has a good, if, well, rude answer to go with it…
If a Democrat had proposed a budget that radically cut the military, raised the top tax rate by nearly a third, ended all the wars, created a national health care system through a new payroll tax (thus relieving businesses of a huge financial burden), expanded EPA and food safety enforcement, and jacked up discretionary spending on education, scientific research, and more, and still yielded trillions of dollars in long-term savings, and then explained the document by saying, "This isn't a budget. This is a cause," do you think that that Democrat would have been hailed as "courageous" by any Republicans?
For the record, however anyone else, Republican or otherwise, might hail such a proposal, around here it'd get a resounding amen.
