Another fine article by Stossel. But it brings up the question of why RINOs accepted the deal in the first place. First, it's not "balanced" with 80% of the money coming from tax increases and only 20% in spending cuts. Second, with half the spending cuts coming from military spending (which needs to be cut), what cuts here are from the Democrats? None are.
Why? I say the RINOs don't really want to cut spending. They could have forced Obama to balance the budget last year by simply not raising the debt ceiling.
