A reporter just asked how the WH would convince Blue Dogs to vote for budget-busting tax cuts. LOL.

I suppose there's a small chance this reporter was being sneaky and trying to elicit an answer along the lines of:

The Blue Dogs don't give a s--- about the deficit, all they care about are tax cuts for corporations and rich people along with subsidies for favorite campaign donors.

But it's more likely that the reporter does not actually know that the Blue Dogs don't give a s--- about the deficit, all they care about are tax cuts for corporations and rich people along with subsidies for favorite campaign donors, and instead believes they truly care about the deficit. Which they don't.
