    Help me crowdsource the Bill

    Help me crowdsource the Bill

    Here it is.

    It’s 74 pages.  We’ve heard various explanations of “the deal.”  I have some views on the deal as explained, but I’d be interested in what readers find that may be at odds with what they’re hearing or at odds with the Boehner PowerPoint.

    I plan on weighing in on the deal this morning, so your comments are appreciated.

    Budget Control Act Amendment – Debt Ceiling Bill
    Update: Thanks for the comments and links, they were really helpful. My new post — and position — is at Dog, Car, Debt Ceiling.

    Ok, can we separate the increases in spending on entitlements (that aren’t being addressed in this bill and are largely demographically determined anyway) from the discretionary spending, particularly non-military? I understand that you cant get where you need to be without entitlement reform, but you really ought to start with the low hanging fruit.

    The argument should be broken up like this and in this order- discretionary, taxes, entitlements. Each needs to be fought on its own ground.

    One stupid question- are these real dollars or do we have to factor in inflation?
