Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said that efforts to bridge the parties' $50 billion difference in proposed budget cuts for the remainder of fiscal-year 2011 could reach beyond domestic discretionary spending and move into tax policy and programs such as farm subsidies.
"There are other places we can move to bring about some cost savings,'' Mr. Reid said. "Domestic discretionary, defense, mandatories, revenues."

Even thought $50B is no where close to enough, I know these cuts wouldnt be talked about had the Democrats had complete control. They would have had no problem just borrowing it and spending it..

This is why a split government is best..
