The Polizeros Prediction on the budget

I’ll be in transit today, so will predict now that a deal will be reached today, averting a shutdown, or within a few days.

None of the negotiations on the budget do anything to cut the deficit and are about trifling amounts of money, comparatively. So, it’s all just both parties pandering to their bases.

The best way to cut the deficit is to bring all the troops home and make corporations pay a reasonable amount of income tax.
