The much awaited Budget deal is sure to disappoint anyone expecting real help for the budget, deficit, or the country.
The spending cuts don’t even arrive immediately, instead they are implemented over a period of years- just $2.4 trillion over a decade.
So much for urgency, seriousness, or responsibility.
The bulk of those cuts have not been identified- kicked down the road to a future Congressional Commission.
All this deal does is kick the real work of building a responsible budget down the road past the 2012 elections.
When are savings not savings?
When they are promised but never achieved.
