  •  Let me speculate on the next two budgets: (6+ / 0-)

    1) NOTHING will pass -- Boehner won't pull off the giant Omnibus bills that Tip O'Neil managed to force Reagan to sign.  The Senate will see to that.
    2) The next two years will be last-minute CR's.
    3) We're going to have to find a way to deal with it until we can 'fix' Congress.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

    •  Hartmann's Speculation is Intentionally (3+ / 0-)

      run 2 yrs on Continuing Resolutions which although would be freezes, is best that can be gotten.

        Which I largely regard as D.O.A.

        That means the only stimulus we're going to get is from Quantitative Easing ($600B printed by the Fed) and that mostly will stimulate China.

        Next two years are gonna suck.

        Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
