Just about exactly what you'd expect

The subtleties of the budget fight were well articulated by the New York Times in an editorial this past week. Social legislation, especially abortion funding, were the big sticking point. Reproductive rights for women in the United States? Republicans won't pay for it. Trillion dollar wars in the middle east? No problem! Abortions are wrong, but killing heathens in oil-rich countries is A-OK. Yeah I don't get it either.

The good news is that you were well represented during the budget battle. Wait... no you weren't. Sucker!
