Why hasn't Democratic Senate come up with "any" deficit reduction plan?

The Democrats control the Senate, yet they have not brought up any deficit reduction bill of their own to even negotiate. If they did, can someone post a link? They are just sitting on their tails doing nothing while "trying" to make it look like whatever happens is the fault of the Republicans, when we all know that the accelerated spending and borrowing and revenue reduction due to joblessness the past 3 years is the fault of the Democrats. Do they really think that we are all clueless sheep just following whatever they say?

Update:

The Democrats still have no specific plan in writing, and Gang of 6 have no agreement as of Sunday morning. The President just wants to push this beyond elections like when congress failed to pass a 2011 budget last year when they were supposed to.

    a million. "ObamaCare" is budget independent, and surely saves worker human beings funds. 2. govt and Congressional expenditures is barely approximately .5% of the value selection is that. 3. lower back no longer a great hit to the value selection, yet gets them off their collective asses and get issues performed. 4. Public sector jobs are nonetheless jobs. inner maximum sector jobs have greater for the previous 18 months. Public sector jobs have dragged the employment numbers and the Republican Governors shop slashing instructors, law enforcement officers and firefighters. do no longer decrease jobs in a recession. That in basic terms places a burden on social amenities. 5. Social protection isn't tied to the value selection or the debt in any respect. It has a $6.3 trillion surplus and is solvent for the subsequent 26 years. improve FICA taxes to greater income will improve that solvency. 6. FREEZE protection? We spend greater suitable than each and every u . s . a . in the worldwide mixed. decrease protection. Pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan. It expenses rather much $10 billion funds just to furnish the warriors with A/C. Bin Ladin is lifeless. carry them abode. Now the place is the attempt to develop sales?

    Your statements are complely false. The "Gang of Six" in the Senate have indeed come up with a proposal, and they have been actively negotiating.

    Apparently some people are clueless sheep, as you put it. Read my source and educate yourself. If you think the New York Times is too biased toward liberals, you can find information about the gang of six and their proposal in any credible media source. Or google.

    They don't want to give up what they already have. If a new bill comes out, it most likely means they cant spend as much any more. They don't want a deficit reduction plan.

    The democrats don't want any deficit reduction. They want to spend. Its what they do. Tax and spend. Its how they keep their voter base.

    Because they, including the Obamunist and his gang of thugs, do not want anyone telling them where, and who they can spend money on. They just want you to keep giving them more, so they can spend it.
