Folks, this 'compromise' plan reached by Obama, Reid, and Boehner is s sham. A farce. It cuts nothing. And even then, the so-called 'cuts' (which are nothing more than reductions in INCREASES already built in) will not take effect until 2013.
But Obama gets a debt ceiling increase of 2.8 trillion that he can spend immediately.
Now, what kind of a 'deal' is that?
The plan, bluntly, is an outrage, and all Patriots should pressure their GOP reps in Congress to vote NO on the deal. Plain as that. And if the Tea Party freshman can't understand plain English, they can easily be voted out in 2012.
