    If it passes the House it is a typical "something for everyone" deal. But I do think the CW going forward is wrong. Republicans will have to talk about exactly what they want to cut now. And in some ways the Democrats might be able to hold the debt ceiling hostage themselves by being seen as defenders of popular programs.

    The situation is far from perfect but it is most certainly not the disaster our friends think. Actually, I'm impressed and pleasantly surprised by the number of sober posters discussing this in the wider community outside DKE. Though I will add that some FP commentary has been discraceful. One comment in particular...
