This is why it is all smoke and mirrors...
And according to S&P and Moodys we need to cut the deficit now by 4T -- and that's just a down payment. Not doing so could still have us downgraded . . .at least that's how I read it.
This plan only reduces the deficit by about 2.5T. How are they touting this as a solution?

Yep, some deal.
Grab the Vaseline, the politicians have a "deal".
Boehner & the repubs are getting rolled again....They've learned nothing since '95.
This is good for America...?
In ten years our national Debt is on track to grow from 14 Trillion to 21 Trillion
It's time to kick the phony liberal sobster mobsters out of Washington....and elect a whole bunch of Tea Party types...
7 trillion is severely underestimated.
It does not reduce the deficit, it increases it. What it reduces is the projected growth of the increase.
Im wondering how so many repubs can be for this deal that just passed without having read it themselves? I guess just whispering sweet narratives in their ear is enough.
Meanwhile youve got investors scratching their heads wondering what Congress is doing; why are lawmakers trying to balance the budget and cut spending on the back of a fragile economic recovery, risking stalling that recovery with no prospect of job growth.
No wonder the roller coaster ride today.
Yep, you got it. The retardeddimocrats are holding future generations hostage.
