McConnell and Schumer celebrate a budget deal that denies reality
This Washington Post editorial was classified as a view from the left based on the following salient opinions expressed:
- While commendable as a token of bipartisan effort, the budget deal proves that the only compromises this congress is capable of producing come at the expense of the national debt.
- The basic achievements of the deal are not particularly impressive: it appropriately allocates funding, but offers no way to cover the costs.
- It is absurd for lawmakers to refuse to accept the realities of government financing; denial over the rising debt paired with an inability to generate economically viable solutions make for a delusional approach to government.
