Now that the budget deal has been made and the country won’t go bankrupt, we can look at how little the Democrats got from all of this. The spiteful attacks on the poorest and most helpless of out society will continue.
On the positive side, there will be some budget cuts to the bloated military spending. That’s about it. We can all expect continued unemployment for some time, more gridlock in Congress and continued attacks on what little is left for this country’s safety net. Other than threatening to let the
default on its debts and start a world wide panic, nothing substantial has made it from this ridiculous fight over a balanced budget all summer long. --សតិវ អតុ US
