If anybody is curious about the actual status of the Debt Ceiling debate, I’m enclosing a link to the site for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. The site has been in existence since August 2010 and they help to parse out the briar thicket that is the federal budget for those of us in the general public. The article is a brief synopsis of the similarities and differences between the plan promoted by House Speaker John Boehner (R – OH) and Senator Harry Reid (D – NV). There’s nothing from the President since frankly, the guy’s got bupkis.
The topic is one that’s gotten some conversation in the house since the prospect of a federal default is increasing daily and it will most certainly be painful for the rest of us should it happen.
And now back to life.
