If the new Republican majority in the house wants to fix our budget woes, one of the first things they need to tackle is entitlement spending. Unfortunately, Speaker Boehner has no plans to reduce entitlement spending (or increase revenue to pay for these entitlements). Instead, he is proposing a vote on restoring cuts to Medicare made by last March's Healthcare reform bill. Looks like the GOP will not offer any new libertarianism, but rather leaves us with more of the same old Bush-era conservatism.
