Democrats and most Republicans in DC seem to be falling all over themselves in praise of the "bi-partisan" federal budget deal announced Tuesday.
This is nothing but a sham.
A Washington Times headline notes: "New budget accord saves $23 billion — after $65 billion spending spree."
This is no kind of fix. This is no improvement.
The touted "compromise" is political gamesmanship designed to spend more money we don't have, intended to sweep serious fiscal issues under the rug until after the November 2014 midterm elections. The proposed "deal" is nothing but a bi-partisan ploy to mask the ugly realities of an increasingly unsustainable America.
Politicians are doing their best to continue an illusion of normal in an America that's everything but.
