Is the new Republican budget proposal a broken record? Cuts, Cuts, Cuts?

House GOP leaders are confident that Congressman Paul Ryan's 2013 budget will pass the House. The bill calls for an additional 2 percent cuts to the President's budget proposal and would extended the federal pay freeze to 2015. But, Politico begs the question, "Did no one learn anything from last summer? Did 2011 not happen?" They say "It can seem that way in Congress these days as Republicans bring their new budget resolution to the House floor next week, hoping to push the reset button on Medicare reform and score a trifecta by rewriting the debt deal struck with President Barack Obama last August." And NARFE isn't too happy about the potential cuts to federal jobs and pay and benefits.  Jule Tagen is the Legislative Director at NARFE. She told Chris Dorobek this budget is just like deja vu for feds.
