Did President Obama Sell Us Out?
Late Sunday evening President Obama along with House Republican Leaders and Senate Democrat Leaders, reached a deal on raising the debt-ceiling before the August 2nd deadline. After months of bickering and an intense stalemate, leaders from both parties have agreed to a "compromise" that should pass both chambers of Congress. All heads are now turned from the soap-opera that has been the debt-ceiling debate, to the actual fine-print of the compromise and how it will effect the people and the economy going forward. According to several new reports this evening, this deal is very close to the original Boehner deal that lacked the votes for passage on Thursday evening.
