Now that the Congressional Budget Office has rescored the six-month budget deal that the GOP and the Dems entered into to avoid an unseemly government shutdown before election day, the GOP isn’t pleased.

That’s because the new budget numbers say that since spending was lower than projected in fiscal 2012 then spending has to be higher in 2013.
