3 / 21 - Never Forget





Oh... and this little gem from the article...

quote:

and cut deficits by an estimated $138 billion over a decade.


Think we can anyone to agree it does THAT anymore?

Wool pulled over the eyes...

Is $138B even material anymore? I feel like we need bigger cuts than that?

You didn't get the point, did you?

During the sales cycle, it was all about cutting the deficit.

Now that it's passed, nobody argues that it's going to ADD $1Trillion to the debt over the next 10 years... and many say much more.

Actually, they decided not to use the 'deem and pass' strategy and ended up clearing the bill through the budget reconciliation process.

Pretty much two sides of the same coin, though, as neither method was ever previously accepted as a method to get around a formal vote by both houses on the same bill language to make a final pass.
