Over the next ten years.

I cant wait until the debt ceiling talks in a couple of months time, should be wonderful, I wonder how many times our lot will negotiate with themselves before they even talk to the Republicans?

Since cliff diving seems to have been avoided, and with very little actual stimulus when you take the sun setting of payroll tax relief [2%] from where is growth going to come?

Or is just an Austerity package that is on its way?

Raise the retirement age?

Cut social security?

Cut Medicare?

Cut every damn social program in the pot.

A cut in the military budget, hahahahahah, fat chance.

Typical of last minute panic induced legislation, nothing is resolved so we have to go through the same shit soon. This never ending loop of short sighted hair on fire bullshit has become wearisome.

Sometimes when you make a pie that nobody likes it is just a piss poor pie?

There was no victory here, not even for bipartisan cuddles.

Nothing has been resolved.

The economy needs to grow, this just perpetuates the status quo of an underfunded state.

There is nothing in this package for the actual economy just a kicking of the proverbial can down the road, income inequality has in no way been addressed.

They have had a year at this, and what we get is quite frankly utter garbage.

The whole bloody lot of them need a fright.

How is that for an independent bipartisany view of the whole rotten circus?

Now to get the lemon meringue beef pie out of the oven, oh yummy, the dogs are in for a treat.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
