    It's a false deal. Yes, no new taxes. So the GOP made good on its claim. BUt I'll bet the spending cuts in two stages go something like this:
    Immediately: $1M in mohair subsidies.
    Sometime between now and 2020: $50Trillion mostly in waste and fraud.

    This might be the best we can get before 2012. After that, with a GOP in the WH, Senate and House control, we might actually get something like real reform.
    I have to say, the GOP, holding only 1/3 of the cards, had done pretty well. The Dems had substantial majorities (filibuster proof for the most part) and still couldnt get a lot of legislation through.

    There shouldn't be any deal before budget is passed.

    Pretty funny.

    After all this round and round they're likely to agree to a plan I"VE been supporting for ages.

    They should have called me.

    FWIW

    Recently the OMB evaluated BOTH the D's plan the R's plan.

    Guess what?

    NEITHER of them results in real decrease in the national debt.

    When are you partisans going to wake up?
