House, Senate negotiators reach budget deal

    GOP will block it. They don't even have to read what is in it. They are now run by the Tea Party anarchists, as they wish to break government without regard to principle, law, people, or morality, based solely on the hate of the president.

    Can hardly wait to see this one. If you trust either side of the aisle or either house you are totally insane.

    Did Rep Paul Ryan and the other Republicans on the negotiations committee get a go ahead OK from Tea Partiers and Limbaugh before agreeing to a deal?
