Dems' Unwritten No-Cuts Pledge | RealClearPolitics: "Democrats walk lockstep down the highway of overspending -- without prompting. It's as if there is an unwritten no-cuts pledge that goes something like this:

I pledge to argue for a "balanced" approach while I steadfastly weasel away from any meaningful attempt to curb spending on social programs."
