Boehnner is already saying the 27th is not an issue and will put through a continuing resolution - he said this over the weekend...
There are two thing at play here - the immediate issue of THIS years budget - meaning the debt ceiling - and long term debt reduction.
If my figures are right over 30 years our debt has grown to $15+T
Reducing it by 20% in the next decade ($3T) is not all that bad - if no new debt is added to it.
Medicare is the big thing though.
This story is not about Medicare but it points out the problems with Medicare are not JUST medicare itself:
