Quote of the Indeterminate Time Interval – wizardpc

by wfgodbold

Wizardpc sums up the budget/debt ceiling debate most succinctly:

Democrats, Republicans, and Obama: Behold! We have a deal! And there are massive cuts.

Democrats: Republicans are evil, and these cuts are going to kill Granny.

Republicans: These cuts are awesome. We totally won!

Tea Party: Umm…these cuts don’t amount to much more than a rounding errror. $100b a year? And most of the cuts don’t come until like 8 years from now? If those were binding, wouldn’t the current budget be the one Republicans came up with in 2003? [emphasis added]

One Congress cannot bind another. That’s not how it works. Anyone claiming otherwise is trying to pretend cuts exist where there are none.
