"Democratic strategists believe that House Republicans committed political suicide by voting to approve Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan last week. 'When we win back the majority, people will look back at this vote as a defining one that secured the majority for Democrats,' Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel told Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent. Obama skillfully framed Ryan’s budget during a major speech on the deficit earlier in the week, contrasting his vision of 'shared sacrifice' with Ryan’s 'deeply pessimistic' plan to gut the social safety net and redistribute income upwards."
