    Don't panic!

    This deal is a disgrace. 20 – 24 Bn USD per year is “saved” when the shutdown of the US Govt cost 24 Bn USD ALONE.

    Is anybody fooled by this nonsense, I do hope not. Just look where you are heading:

    Let’s hope the “bomb” does not “go off”.

    “US congress agrees budget deal reducing risk of government shutdown”

    Shouldn't they “agree a budget deal that stops government shutdown” ???

    Jeez, their government is so tribal it's a wonder that they can agree on ANYTHING.

    Most of them can't see passed their own hatred
