    We didn't get much if any cuts now but the budget battle should be firing up in a couple weeks. Will be interesting to see if this ends up the same. I expect the realization of this is giving Obama a major migraine. I wonder if Reid will actually pass a budget this year?

    On a side note I heard all the msm and msnbc call republicans terrorists. They won't even call terrorists, terrorists. Pathetic....

    They're going to start doing budgets again? But those are so arcane.

    Budget deficit slips to $1.28T; red ink continues
    Aug 24,`11 WASHINGTON (AP) - After months of unrelieved gloom and discord, Congress and President Barack Obama are starting to make a dent in the federal budget deficit. It's projected to shrink slightly to $1.28 trillion this year, and bigger savings from this month's debt ceiling deal are forecast over the next decade.

    How is talks of congress passing a budget does not belong in politics? Mod, whoever you are, don't you find it odd that we are nearly out of time to pass a 2012 budget? And that's not worthy of debate?
