I guess this is a bad thing

Republicans may be very disappointing when it comes to fiscal responsibility, but the Democrats are, of course, even worse. Robert Novak writes:
In a half-century of watching Congress, I have never seen anything like the unified Democratic stand against any reduction in entitlements or discretionary spending. For all their lecturing about restoring "fiscal integrity," Democrats in both houses of Congress support only tax increases and provide no help whatsoever in cutting spending. But last Thursday's melancholy developments show that Republicans, more than a decade after taking over Congress, cannot stand up against spending either.
