A Primer on the Latest Washington Follies:


Washington's budget brawl: 8 things you need to know:

Washington's budget fight: 8 things you need to know - Aug. 5, 2013

When Congress returns from its five-week summer break in September, lawmakers will face some make-or-break fiscal issues that they have once again left to the last minute.

The stars seem aligned for an ugly fight over the federal budget, automatic spending cuts and the debt ceiling.

At the heart of the issue: The two parties can't agree on a level of spending going forward, and there is disagreement even among Republicans as well.

If you only get $2 trillion in revenue then you can't spend $3.5 trillion.
Well you can but then you have to borrow.

Cuts across the board to get expenses in line with revenue.
Everyone feels the pinch..no favorites, no exceptions.

Try auditing spending programs.
The Lifeline audit scrubbed 41% of subscribers who didn't qualify and saved us $1 billion annually.

Yep, but it will never happen. Nobody on either side wants their spending programs audited.

Oh my God... I understand random typos and gramatical errors in everyday posts, but if you're going to go to the trouble of creating a graphic for distribution around the web the minimum you should do is spell-check the words and use consistent capitalization.
