"A few months ago, Washington's big bad wolf was Republicans' refusal to compromise by supporting any deficit reduction plan that included tax increases. Republicans were unreasonable, editorial pages fulminated, obstructionist and standing in the way of meaningful reform. On Monday, the supercommittee admitted it had failed to cut $1.2 trillion from the deficit over 10 years. Citizens Against Government Waste spokesperson Leslie K. Paige called it 'the unpardonable turkey.' At least this turkey cannot be laid on the GOP's doorstep." (11/22/11)
