Top GOPer on Super Committee: No new revenue and will try to exempt DOD from cuts

So the Republican strategy is once again to take America hostage.  Either give them what they demand, no compromise, or they’ll change the rules of the game and permit no defense cuts, even though the deal was 50-50 cuts to domestic and defense if the Super Committee couldn’t reach a deal.  This is what many of us said they’d do, they would refuse to compromise and then find a way to exempt the military and put all the cuts on domestic programs the Democrats care about.  And as Brian Beutler, that’s exactly their strategy.
