A weekend of talks among members of the congressional committee charged with coming up with $1.2 trillion in budget cuts appeared to produce no last-minute compromise ahead of Monday's practical deadline.

Maybe they should have been named the Super-DUD Committee.

Given the fact that these people (with the possible exception of James Clyburn) are comfortably wedged in the backsides of the one percent, this was probably the best possible outcome, At least defense squandering will be cut.

If the congress (divided by the two parties) could not come up with a solution, why would you think a committee (similarly divided) would have different results? A simple solution would be to limit appropriation bills by what is authorized in the constitution. But preventing runaway spending is like trying to stop a drug addict.

According to the article, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, argued that an agreement "proved impossible not because Republicans were unwilling to compromise, but because Democrats would not accept any proposal that did not expand the size and scope of government or punish job creators."

Translation: They will NOT, under any circumstances, allow the Bush tax cuts to expire. Does this silly man really expect us to believe that the 1% he protects like a rabid pit bull are job creators? If that's the case, where are the jobs? And in order to reduce the size of government, there would have to be a lot of privatization of services --and that would benefit only the rich because they would control the services our government currently provides and would determine how much we pay for them. Does anyone want individual bills for garbage collection? Snow removal? Roadway maintenance? Firefighting services? Policing services? And who would perform the duties of the EPA, FDA, local health departments? And what about our infrastructure?

Mitch McConnell needs to pull his lips off Grover Norquist's ass and do what's right for this country.

As I understand it its not an economic problem, since the neccesary cutbacks in US government spending are allready in place.
The comitee simply couldnt agree on anything better.

what a surprise, even a small subset of congress can't agree on anything.

The Republicans need to seriously consider their position of supporting the rich. Their lack of flexibility on taxing the wealthy is killing this country.
