Re: Revolution or Counterrevolution?

Bill Schneider or Charles Krauthammer?

Krauthammer today comes down on my side, maintaining that Republican actions are revolutionary:
At the federal level, President Obama's budget makes clear that Democrats are determined to do nothing about the debt crisis, while House Republicans have announced . . . their April budget will actually propose real entitlement reform.

Simultaneously, in Wisconsin and other states, Republican governors are taking on unsustainable, fiscally ruinous pension and health-care obligations, while Democrats are full-throated in support of the public-employee unions crying, "Hell, no."

A choice, not an echo: Democrats desperately defending the status quo; Republicans charging the barricades. [emphasis added]
