The Daily Haymaker, December 11, 2013
We’ve got 535 voting members of Congress. Yet. this “bi-partisan”, “disaster-averting” budget deal announced yesterday got hammered out in private talks between Senate Budget Committee chairman Patty Murray and House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan.Two people out of a potential population of 535.
We’re being told it balances the budget over ten years. We’re being told it doesn’t raise taxes. We’re told this will be accomplished by doing away with a good chunk of the sequester cuts — which were initiated because these yo-yos failed to do the most important job assigned to them by The Constitution.
