Budget deal reached! Crisis averted!


How about some perspective? What Boehner, Reid and Obama agreed to last night is to spend $39 billion less in 2011 than the federal government spent in 2010. Sounds like a lot of money until you look at the big picture. In 2010 the federal government spent $3.552 trillion. Do the math--that's only 1.1% less. Not to mention that our national debt is nearly $14.3 trillion and growing.

Such a big fuss over practically nothing. I can't wait until the fighting starts on a 2012 budget and raising the debt ceiling. Yippee!
