Bipartisan panels have history of coming up short on crafting spending and debt-ceiling fixes. *************** I wonder what clues lead to this conclusion? Was it all those years of deficit spending, or the 17+ trillion dollar debt???? I wonder what would have happened if the democrats would have voted for that balanced budget amendment back in the late 90's? I bet I will hear a lot of opinions and wild accusations on that question

I wonder what would have happened if republicans would have paid for their tax cuts in the 2000s, or if they would stop ignoring pay-as-you-go policies that democrats implement when they are in charge
