So our congressional “leaders” have reached a compromise to avoid the fiscal cliff. Now they are patting themselves on the back for “getting the job done.”
But wait a minute, the Congressional Budget Office says that the compromise bill just signed will add almost $4 trillion to the national debt over the next four years (TNT, 1-1). May the good Lord save us from too many such fruitful accomplishments.
The only bright lining I see is the fact that the state has a congressman who continues to exhibit concern for what is best for the country. I tip my hat to Rep. Adam Smith once again for voting no on such a mishmash of legislation.
