Not serious

As Kevin Drum says, the Simpson-Bowles plan to balance the budget drown the government in a bathtub is not serious.

Bottom line: this document isn't really aimed at deficit reduction. It's aimed at keeping government small. There's nothing wrong with that if you're a conservative think tank and that's what you're dedicated to selling. But it should be called by its right name. This document is a paean to cutting the federal government, not cutting the federal deficit.
Question: Why is it that the Democrats always give up before the fight begins?

Update: Paul Krugman doesn't think it's serious either.
