>Republicans keep getting hammered for failing to answer specifically how they'd cut spending.
Obviously job one for the Young Guns and the NRCC must be coming up with something, anything, to show there's substance to match the fiscal conservative rhetoric. Or they will continue to look disingenuous and incompetent.
(And Rep. Aaron Schock's answer on Morning Joe -- cutting the $20 million cost of Recovery Act signs, relative to a $1.5 trillion deficit -- is a bit lacking.)
Of course, there's also the little problem of more and more economists coming forward to say the economy needs greater spending now, not less -- but what should that have to do with politics?
