GOP Will Not Offer a Detailed Budget

According to a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the Senate GOP's plan remains the same: Republicans are planning to offer individual amendments to the Democratic budget but not a detailed, comprehensive budget of their own.

That’s what made an exchange Sunday with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” intriguing.

DAVID GREGORY: “Do you think that Republicans should provide a detailed budget alternative?”

McCAIN: “Yes.”

GREGORY: “With numbers?”

McCAIN: “Yes.”

GREGORY: “Will that happen in the Senate?”

McCAIN: “We're working on it, working very hard on it.”

So -- are they?

Actually, no.

The Senate GOP has no plans to release a detailed alternative budget.
