Just listen to the squeals coming from Democrats, as they realize their four-year spending binge is over. From The Hill:
A proposed House rule granting new powers to the GOP chairman of the Budget Committee has sparked outrage from Democrats.
The proposed rule would allow the Budget Committee chairman to set spending ceilings for 2011 without a vote by the full House.

In practice, this would give power to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the incoming chairman of the panel, to impose deep spending cuts since spending bills cannot exceed the budget ceiling for the 2011 fiscal year.

Goodtimepolitics: Just look who complaining about transparent and honest Congress, yes it’s the behind the door dealing crooks the democrats. Nancy Pelosi now the little person in Congress is getting her own medicine that she handed out back in her face. I have news for Pelosi, the Congress with the Republicans in control has just started and so she just as well sit back and relax those lips! The Democrats should have worked on the Budget before the elections instead of all those other Obama pet issues that was passed! The Republicans should refuse all admendments from the democrats just as they did to the Republicans over the last two years! Can’t wait until 2012 so we can send the rest of the Democrats home to rest!
