The chart....a quickly assembled comparison of just what the "Major" budget cuts achieved in last night's agreement really mean. The perspective offered should make more than a few open their eyes just a bit wider!
In my estimation the only thing actually achieved by Boehner and the GOP/Tea Party is to adjust the attitudes in Congress from spend-spend to halt and cut. That is probably a hugely more impressive feat than the actual cuts achieved. Now, can they continue this attitude into the 2012 budget discussions?
