More Of The Same

With the recent announcement by House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi that James Clyburn, Chris Van Hollen and Xavier Becerra will join Republican counterparts Dave Camp, Fred Upton and Jeb Hensarling, it becomes apparent that the lines in the sand have been drawn and the concept of a “grand bargain” may be DOA.

“Congressional leadership is sending a loud signal they didn’t like Bowles-Simpson,” said Robert Bixby, president of the nonpartisan Concord Coalition, an Arlington, Virginia-based group that advocates for a balanced budget. “If you are going to say taxes and entitlements are off the table, I don’t know what they can do that hasn’t already been done.”

Looks like we are in for an interesting ride.  Can anyone tell me how to get off?
