Our Congress is the management staff or the Titanic, and their solution??? To move a few deck chairs around! From WAPO:
The Congressional Budget Office estimate shows that the spending bill due for a House vote Thursday would pare just $352 million from the deficit through Sept. 30. About $8 billion in cuts to domestic programs and foreign aid are offset by nearly equal increases in defense spending.$352 MILLION from a deficit of 1,600,000 MILLION? A 0.022% decrease in borrowing?
