They don't call US Senate Republicans the stupid party for nothing. If they take the latest deal from Harry Reid, not a single dime of spending will be cut now or ever in the future. If Tea Party Republicans in the House go for this horrible deal, even with a modest compromise from Democrats on tax rates, John Boehner has failed as a GOP leader if the House approves. Never in the future will any Congress or any president of either existing party cut any spending at all until the government is forced into bankruptcy. It CAN happen.
