Posted on 12/10/2013 3:24:59 PM PST by Olog-hai
Congressional budget negotiators have reached a two-year agreement aimed at avoiding a government shutdown on Jan. 15 and setting federal government spending levels through Oct. 1, 2015.
Democratic Senator Patty Murray and Representative Paul Ryan scheduled a news conference for 6 p.m. EST to announce the details of the deal they worked out.
As details of a budget deal trickled out of Washington on Tuesday, conservative groups prepared to oppose any agreement that would alter the automatic spending cuts from the 2011 deal.
Republican and Democratic negotiators budget agreement would stop as much as $65 billion in sequestration cuts and avoid a possible federal government shutdown next month.

A “bipartisan deal”. That’s assuming of course that there are still TWO parties.
Paul Ryan had way too many of us fooled in his VP campaigning.
And we get sold down the river again;what else is new?
Both parties support big government and big spending. We are going to get plenty of parsing of words and plenty of lying. There will be tax increases (they will be called fees and other increases in revenue); there will be an end to the sequester for the next two years to assuage the crony capitalists (many of them in the defense industry) and an increase in government spending balanced out by some ambiguous cuts in out years; and there will be no entitlement reform—just some cuts in federal pensions and increases in federal employee retirement contributions.
If you compromise with the devil, the devil wins even if it is ever so slowly.....then the devil uses it against you in the future and says you were for it too!
As long as there are no tax increases, I guess I’m OK with it, as I don’t think a protracted battle and any talk of another shut down help the republicans at all.
I think if the dems can be forced to agree to no tax or “revenue” increases, it’s a win for us, because that is their holy grail.
This was our VP candidate last year. The whole 2012 campaign was a big joke!
As long as it is in the aggregate personal interest of individual reps and three term reps to spend us into bankruptcy . . .
Here is my take after watching Ryan. He is every bit the damn liar that Obama is.
This is why Americans’ are sooooooo fed up with this out of control administration and the RINO’s who bend over backwards to support them!
Just came out in the news, (Drudge) that numerous Republicans are in love with Obamacare!
Bi-partisan? Communist Murray and RINO Ryan, those two (2) really represent the American people, NOT! Ever wonder why the budget negotiations were conducted in secret and behind locked doors? Now you know why!
The grace of God is what militates against this, however.
And when the grace of God goes face to face with the blasphemies of the devil... the grace of God wins.
Satan is a laughable little runt. As far as God is concerned.
sells us a little
down the river
There is a reckoning coming, and it won't be pretty. Some will die. But these politicians don't care.
Some of that revenue Ryan thought up is charging better off seniors higher Medicare premiums to offset some of the sequester cuts.
Ryan is a liberal jackass!
RYAn is DEAD to me....DEAD!
“I dont think a protracted battle and any talk of another shut down help the republicans at all”
Shut it down WITH ABSOLUTELY NO RETROACTIVE PAY!!!!!
Whew, thank God. I was hoping we wouldn’t attempt to ever put our fiscal house in order.
