The budget compromise struck last weekend has been exposed
by the Congressional Budget Office as a SHAM. The CBO
reports that the alleged $38 billion in cuts actually
amounts to just $353 million in real cuts!
The rest of the alleged "cuts" were accounting tricks and
supposed "future" cuts! And when the full effect of all the
increases in spending are taken into account, Politico
reports that "CBO now says that total discretionary outlays
for 2011 are higher -- not lower -- by about $3.3 billion
than it had estimated in December."
So instead of the "compromise" total of $38 billion in
spending cuts, Congress is actually voting on a budget
deal that has NO REAL CUTS AT ALL!
