    Well, our problems are now solved! We now have a deal that:
    (1) doesn’t address significant entitlement reform
    (2) probably doesn’t prevent our debt downgrade
    (3) cuts spending in the near term, which is dumb.
    In other words, a perfectly good waste of a manufactured debt crisis.
    We had a debate 2 Summers ago about addressing significant entitlement reform. Alas, those who didn’t like the “public option” because they didn’t want their hard-earned tax dollars to pay for some ni**a’s healthcare won.
