The Congressional Budget Office estimate shows that the spending bill due for a House vote Thursday would pare just $352 million from the deficit through Sept. 30. About $8 billion in cuts to domestic programs and foreign aid are offset by nearly equal increases in defense spending.

So the dog and pony show broadcast for almost a week on the MSM about the possible government shutdown was more smoke and mirrors trying to convince us that the Congress was having to make hard decisions on the budget.
I'm so sick of them thinking we're all dolts and buying this misinformation.


The CBO study confirms that the measure trims $38 billion in new spending authority, but says many of the cuts come in slow-spending accounts like water-and-sewer grants that don’t have an immediate deficit impact.
