Debt Limit - 2 Cents
Posted by: Mark Nichols

Apparently there's an agreement in place to raise the debt ceiling and cut spending - each by $2 trillion. The problem is the cut spending is only from future increases, so it's not a real cut but rather a decrease in the increase.

By putting it so far in the future, it's also like saying, "We're going to cut emissions 20% by 2021-22." Congratulations, but "we're" means "someone else, hopefully," so you're essentially saying, "Not my problem!"

Here's an article from Yahoo about how the budget cuts aren't really cuts because spending is still increasing.
