Nobody Could Have Predicted

WASHINGTON — As pessimism mounted this week over the ability of a bipartisan Congressional committee to agree on a deficit-reduction plan, lawmakers began taking steps to head off the large cuts in Pentagon spending that would automatically result from a failure of the panel.

Whatever - if anything - comes out of the superwankers I'm guessing the likeliest result is a cutting of Social Security benefits, a doubling of the defense budget, and a slashing of tax rates on rich people. Despite increasing the deficit by trillions, it will be hailed as a bold deficit cutting plan by the usual suspects.

Because they don't care about the deficit.
