    About 80 votes came in within the final 30 seconds. I guess they needed all the time they could get to read the bill...

    The debt ceiling deal has been approved by the Senate and signed by President Obama! Woohoo! No collapse of the world economy (for now)! Thanks to all of our very responsible politicians for saving the world from themselves! :

    The Obama cash cow can once again be milked!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    A cut is not a decrease in planned spending.

    It would take a while to explain base line budgeting. Don't know if I can type that much in one sitting anymore.

    I understand baseline budgeting.

    It requires funding for existing government service levels for the upcoming year over a ten year period.

    We need to reduce government service levels in order to call it a cut, and the present action still allows for 5-7% growth in the budget per year.

    I cannot imagine the free monthly checks and welfare receiving ANY significant attention. They'll start with the military.

    I suppose it's just which article you wish to apply.

    Fewer cops, more potholes: How debt deal could hit states hardest - Yahoo! News

    Taxpayers can expect larger class sizes, fewer police officers, and more potholes, says Jo Comerford, executive director of the National Priorities Project, a left-leaning non-profit that monitors government spending.
    “Medicaid will almost certainly be on the table,” says Ward. “The looming deficits are just too big to ignore, and too big to close with tax increases or military reductions alone.”
