After a Congressional Budget Office report showed that the recent deal on a 2011 budget did little to cut the deficit, Republicans will seek more this time around.

“Politically, at this moment, I don’t see any way that Congress can pass a clean debt-limit bill,” Bill Hoagland, an adviser to former Majority Leader Bill Frist, told Politico.

“There are just too many people who have made too many statements on the Republican side in both the House and Senate.”
