I am still betting that a deal will be reached at the last minute. It will be some accounting gimmick. Neither party wants to make any real cuts in spending.
That’s a pretty good bet. I wouldn’t touch it.
That’s a safe bet and you’ll likely be proven right. Some form of “adjustments” will be made and couched in the usual obfuscating terms and phrases. Spending is the “oil” that lubricates the political machinery that is Washington, DC.
One thing we know for certain: this year’s federal expenditures will be greater than last year’s.
