Budget Compromise

The threatened government shutdown has been averted.  The politicians in Washington realized that no one would appreciate the idea of our military being in combat, and their families not receiving financial support.  That would cost them votes next election.

I have not seen the details of the compromise.  If it is a good compromise then everyone should be equally unhappy.  Yes, I said unhappy.  A compromise means that you have had to give up something that you wanted originally.  It means that you hoped for more than you are receiving in the deal.  It is a fair compromise, when both sides give up equal shares.  Of course, each side also should receive things that are important to them., but they should come at the cost of other things of lesser importance.

Hopefully, our political leaders will figure out what is truly important.

    I do agree your assessment of a fair compromise. It will be interesting what was gained and at what cost.
