Country Club Republicans promise $100 billion in spending cuts

Somewhere in this press release, disguised as a news item, is the last moment capitulation by the country club Republicans to the Tea Party, who are really driving this train now -
Country Club Republican and House Speaker, John Boehner
Republicans promise $100 billion in spending cuts - Yahoo! News:
"WASHINGTON – Confronted with a rebellion of tea party-backed conservatives insistent on deeper spending cuts, House Republicans are promising to cut more than $60 billion from the budget as they draft legislation funding the government through Sept. 30. 
Thursday's announcement by Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers comes just a day after he failed to sell a smaller package of cuts in a closed-door GOP meeting. 
'Our intent is to make deep but manageable cuts in nearly every area of government, leaving no stone unturned and allowing no agency or program to be held sacred,' Rogers said in a statement. 
Driving the move is a promise made in last fall's campaign to cut $100 billion from President Barack Obama's proposals."
Budgets are sexier when everything is on the table.
