Republicans to Hold the Line on Upcoming Budget Match

In 2011, Republicans fought the President's demands for a blank check for spending in the federal budget. Republicans held the line on spending and accepted the conditions that followed, including sequester. This fall, Congress once again faces an impending budget showdown between Republicans and Democrats.  
On Fox Business Network, Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform, highlights this trend and argues that the Republicans will stay strong and hold the line on spending. He notes that the President is inclined to request the amount of money in the budget that will be enough to get him through to next election, looking towards the future of his party, not the future of the country.
