I'm not really familiar with how the US budget and debt work. I don't like C-CPI because it sounds incredibly cheap and not fulfilling its role as social redistribution. But the fact that he's including it sounds like he's making a really big compromise that nobody is willing to stomach. If the American public is afraid of both too much spending and too much cutting, then it would be a good idea to find some middle ground, wouldn't it?
Thats the unfortunante thing - Modern politics is now based on hyper-partisanship. Members of both parties follow this idealogy - My way or else - but it's much more prevalent in the Republican party.

This is a older comic, but it fits - Especially given Republicans rejection of his budget.
