Freeze Gets...Wait For It...Chilly Reaction From Liberals

More

It's not a move designed to be popular with liberals, so it should come as little surprise that liberal analysts and opinion writers aren't too...hot...on the president's plan to freeze domestic discretionary spending over the next three years. In fact, their reactions were a bit nippy. Arctic, even. They lacked in Kelvin.

The Atlantic Wire's Max Fisher reports that liberal commentators are attacking not necessarily the effects of this spending freeze, but the politics of it--calling it a transparent reaction to the Massachusetts Senate race and forecasting a backlash among congressional Democrats.
