Discuss Hodag's answer to: What Are State and Local Governments to Do?

What Are States Going to Do About the Horrible Debt-Limit Deal? Because of the awful deal on the debt ceiling, the country is facing yet another crisis—a massive wave of even more painful cuts from ...

This "horrible deal" is manufactured from the whole cloth.  The deal "promises" 2+ trillion in budget cuts, in no specific area.  There is not a single word there to indicate that state and/or local governments will lose funds.  The cuts, if there ever are any (doubtful) will be agreed upon by a bi-partisan board consisting of one half Democrats, one half Republicans.  Anyone who believes any promise from a politician of any stripe, probably also believes the moon is made from green cheese.  The half-and-half board will argue endlessly and do nothing more.  

If I can't always dazzle 'em with brilliance, I'll try baffling 'em with BS. Band of None
