There's been a lot written about the budget deal that the President & Congress reached last night. I'm not really sure I can add much else, except to point to Robert Reich's commentary on how the Democrats managed to actually move backwards from the GOP's initial offer of $32 billion in cuts to wind up at over $38 billion in cuts. Who was the lead negotiator for the Dems again....?
The next fight is over the national debt limit. Pay attention, folks - it's going to happen again, and the stakes are even higher.
