So when the recession comes, who will the GOP blame?


Obama, Hillary and Millenials.

This is no big deal. Its just a budget, just a guideline. They will still need to pass an appropriations bill with specifics...that is where it will be hard and considering they passed this by 2 votes, that doesn't look great for them.

Also about this reconciliation bit. I barely ever saw it mentioned until McConnell tried to use it to screw Obamacare. What exactly is it? Fixing a law without actually making a new one?

Reconciliation is something that allows you to pass bills "related to the budget" with a simple majority vote. It basically allows the Repubs to pass something terrible with a simple majority and not worry about a filibuster. However it can only be used for 1 issue a year technically. There are also a lot of special rules to it, like if the bill increases the deficit, then it sunsets after 10 years.

Kansas here we come.

Luckily, we don't have to worry about that on the federal level. The states have to balance the budget at some point.

While I'm skeptical of the projection, that would only be about $150 billion added to the debt on average per year.

It's still sad that $150 billion deficits are seen as "good" for Washington, especially when (yet again) the "savings" are said to occur 10 years from now, only to see the plan revoked almost immediately in reality, the next time they want to spend big on something.
