If the WaPo says it, you know the opposite is probably true.

Are they swallowing their own BS or do they just serve it up to us?

I’ve heard this deal described both positively and negatively. It wouldn’t be past the Washington Post to pee on us and say it was raining—saying it’s a great deal for the GOP, when it isn’t. Hoping for the best, but doubtful, based on past history.

I am not totally sour on this deal, depending on some of the details on this commission and triggers, etc, but at the same time, this is like the 2011 CR deal where suddenly the mainstream media trumpeted the big Republican win. If they are so willing to pronounce that victory, the deal probably stinks.

"major spending cuts"

Uh, wouldn't those be just minor rate of increase reductions?

Base-line budgeting still kicked their butts.

My mouth was agape while reading this article.

I have to think about it

Are they trying to blame the stinker of the deal on the Republicans so that when America finds out what a truly horrible thing it is the Republicans take the heat?

in perhaps the most remarkable example of political up-is-downism in recent memory

Seems to be a lot of that going on nowadays.

You have to realize that from the “inside the beltway” view, it is a huge GOP victory-—but we here in the real world measure things in terms of liberal vs. conservative, and this is at best a wash. The best thing about it is that it all has, despite the efforts of the libtards in the media, made Obama and Reid look like impotent silly little children squabbling over whose cat’s-eye marble it is.

Yup. If the WAPO says on their weather page that it will rain today, I’m bringing my Ray Bans.

Money paid (involuntarily) to Medicare and SS = a contract with the people (who actually did pay money) and the government.

They better not screw us.

The latter. They think it is still 1989, and we will believe any mewling little man in a suit.

If the House is supposed to be in charge of finances, why have they not gone to Zer0 based budgeting? Make that zero based budgeting.

(Why can't the House fix a light bulb problem?)

Drop both NEAs and I’ll believe that an actual effort was made. Shut down the UN and the EPA—might make enough of a dent to show sincerity. Now, not over ten years.
