ELECTION: Where is the plan, GOP?

Now the GOP has taken the U.S. House, what discretionary spending cuts are they going to make? When asked by the election-night panel on MSNBC, not one member of the GOP could answer that question when asked. And when asked over and over again, still no response was given.

Another question was asked: Are they going to raise the debt ceiling or default on the debt? Again, no response from the GOP.

The GOP has made a lot of promises to the American people with no answers or plan on how to control spending. Where is the money? If the GOP has a hiring freeze for government workers, lays them off or ends up shutting down the government, then what? Those workers will file for unemployment, and the people’s work will not be done.

I know what will happen. They will just blame the president.
