Budget Cuts Just a Slight of Hand?

It appears that most of the $38 billion in budget cuts were nothing more than standard Washington slight of hand and budget gimmickry and there really weren't any big cuts.

This shouldn't be surprising. Maybe the GOP just wants to have the real showdown as part of the debt ceiling increase, but if they don't have the guts to shut down the government if spending isn't cut, then there isn't much hope. Dems couldn't care less about the national debt or even making an appearance of cutting spending.
