Here's the reason:
The Democrats leaked the story to the Post (and NYT).
Because there will be another debt limit fight coming up before the election!
This is because of the Payroll tax "cut" the Dems and Obama pushed through. This is increasing the deficit beyond the value calculated to last until the election is over.
When the debt limit issue comes up again, the Dems will insist on the Repubs raising taxes and will use this as the bludgeon - "see, they were willing to increase taxes last time, ..."

No matter what the Dummycrats say, the national debt has increased by $5 Trillion. In addition under Obama, the country's credit rating was downgraded. Why, because Obama was playing political games. I'm outraged. Period. This is a disgrace and if the GOP and FOX do not make hay of this we deserve another four years of Obama.

Yep, another reneging trap on “read my lips, no new taxes”, which tanked the economy and Bush Rhino idiot Sr. re-election.
What a bunch of clipped on turds.
