The Congressional Budget Office announced yesterday the deal made by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and President Barack Obama is mere pittance of a pittance…. instead of the $38 Billion in spending cuts that was announced late Friday night, we’re going to see our deficit cut by (drumroll please) $352 million.

The editors at The National Review originally supported the deal, and now they’re backing off with the CBO news.  Former Governor Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) has come out against it.  Another prospective 2012 candidate, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) voted against the continuing resolution on Friday and has indicated she will vote against the deal.  Former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) was already against the deal before this news came out.

Governor Haley Barbour (R-MS) and Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) weighed in favor and former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) urged Congress to make the deal.  Is he rethinking this now.

What I thought was a horrible deal on Saturday now looks even worse.  What exactly did Republicans get out of this deal again?

      1. I’m serious. Shut the goverment down. Everything but the military and other essential elements. National Parks are nice, they aren’t essential. Neither is the education department, the NEA, etc.
