Boehner makes his last bad deal with Obama?
Taxpayers are being asked to pay a high price for "peace" between big spending Democrats and conservative Republicans. To the extent that Boehner got any concessions from Obama they were probably because of the fear that more conservative Republicans would be even harder on his spending addiction. There is already opposition within the Republican caucus to the deal.
The 144-page bill is almost underwhelming in its size and scope. But after five years of political gridlock, that may be the inherent genius of it.
