One day after House Democratic leaders struck what was seen as a breakthrough deal with a handful of key moderates, the liberal wing of the party lined up Thursday against the compromise.
Fifty-three lawmakers from the Congressional Black Caucus, the Progressive Black Caucus and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and key committee chairmen formally opposing the deal that House leaders struck with a group of fiscally conservative Democrats known as Blue Dogs.
The letter, written to express their "opposition" to the negotiated deal, called the agreement "fundamentally unacceptable" and a "large step backwards."
"We're going to fight this with every effort that we have," CBC Chairwoman Barbara Lee, D-Calif., told reporters Thursday.
I noticed another problem, why are their two black caucus' and a hispanic caucus?

Would you kindly explain to me the unfunded war on terrorism the last 8 years then?
Better yet, could you explain the debt that was created under Reagan as well?
Do these not count to you or are you willing to set them aside to fit your own political bias?
Gladly. You dont put your whole country at risk because you dont have the funding set aside for a war. We didnt have the cash laying around for WW2 either, but it didnt mean we shouldnt defend ourselves
Even while fighting 2 wars and paying for Katrina Bush only created a deficit of a little over 400 million dollars in 8 years. The rest of his deficit was created by TARP, which was probably a bad idea. Since Obama has taken office the deficit has soard to 2 trillion dollars just for this year.
We all need a steady oil supply, not just the global elite. Try driving your car to work with a tankful of syrup one day.
I cant believe you can say it is our fault that they blew up the towers. Did we make them do it? NO! They chose to do it because they disagree with our political views and way of life. I guess we should live how they want us to live and it wouldnt be our fault. That is ridiculous!
