    Countdown to the debt deal

    Countdown to the debt deal

    Speculation abounds, from The NY Times on down (or is it, on up?):

    The Obama administration has informed Democratic Congressional leaders that President Obama and Speaker John A. Boehner were starting to close in on a major budget deal that would enact substantial spending cuts and seek future revenues through a tax overhaul, Congressional officials said Thursday.

    In the meantime, it looks like the House Cut-Cap-Balance Bill will come up for a vote on closure this Saturday.  Protein Wisdom (h/t Pasadena Phil) has a list of Senatorial contact information.  Most of them are lost causes, but perhaps these few could be influenced by public reaction:

    The NYTimes report is ‘hogwash’. All the news that’s fit to print?? Organized confusion, and wishful thinking. Just say NO to tax increases. The only proposal on paper is the House, Cut, Cap and Balance, H.R. 2560 !!
