The article looks at the plans of the Democrats, who have made promises about their first 100 legislative hours in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Democrats have announced that during the first burst of legislation, Republican alternative proposals will not receive a vote on the floor. They are promising to break the link between lobbyists and legislation. The Democratic version of pay-as-you-go budgeting, which allows no new deficit spending, is to allow tax hikes to make up for higher spending.
