I am actually worried that the politicians will cut a deal which keeps in place the growing deficit and the behemoth government with the Department of Redundancy Department and the many other wasteful programs.

The idea of settling on something where there is no pain to anyone on either side is horrible. This is a mammoth debt, and without a real plan for reducing it, we are getting nothing but a Band-Aid for cancer.
