Yup a big cut. The Fed will still be printing 70 billion new dollars a year. All borrowed monies, all will go to the balance of the ever growing deficit. Some day we are going to have to bite the bullet.

"What the next debt ceiling fight will look like
By Jeanne Sahadi @CNNMoney December 19, 2013: 4:49 PM ET

Key Republicans Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have signaled that their party will insist on a quid pro quo before raising the debt ceiling again. Just what exactly isn't clear.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said this week that Republicans will demand something in exchange for an increase in the debt ceiling early next year.

The White House, meanwhile, said it won't negotiate on the issue.

The country now has had extensive experience with debt ceiling brinksmanship over the past three years -- as recently as October.

While no two standoffs are exactly alike, budget analysts and political observers expect this next round of see-who-blinks-first to be tamer than hot rhetoric may suggest in the weeks ahead.

For starters, 2014 is a mid-term election year and Republicans realize it was a political mistake this fall to shut down the government and risk default.

"It is hard to imagine they would risk [being] blamed for a default scare in an election year," said Sean West, US policy director at the Eurasia Group, in a research note.

Second, lawmakers have twice in the past year opted for an easy out -- a debt ceiling suspension -- when they failed to hammer out a real agreement over an increase in the borrowing limit.

A suspension doesn't technically raise the debt ceiling, but lets the Treasury Department keep borrowing as needed to pay the country's bills, thereby averting default on U.S. obligations. And it doesn't force lawmakers to go on the record as voting for an increase.

"The odds favor a clean repeat of what we did last time," said Pete Davis, a former Capitol Hill staffer and founder of Davis Capital Investment Ideas.

The last two debt suspensions were only a few months long. If Congress opts for a third, it is likely to last much longer since neither Republicans nor Democrats will want to revisit the debt ceiling issue too close to the November elections, Davis said.

Another reason this time may be different -- yes, famous last words -- is because Republicans haven't really organized a strategy around the issue yet.

"Several clients have asked us what the Republicans will demand for raising the debt ceiling. Our answer: we have no idea and neither do they," said Greg Valliere, chief political strategist of the Potomac Research Group, in a morning note Wednesday morning.

In the past, House Speaker John Boehner and other key Republicans have signaled months in advance of the debt ceiling boiling point their exact demands in exchange for a debt ceiling agreement.

This time around, the first real mention of demands came this past weekend, when Ryan said Republicans would gather after the Christmas break "and discuss exactly what it is we're going to try and get."

That's not a lot of lead time.

The current debt ceiling suspension ends February 7. After that, Treasury will be able to keep paying bills in full by using special accounting maneuvers known as "extraordinary measures."

It's hard to predict exactly when those measures would run dry. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Thursday alerted lawmakers that he currently estimates the measures wouldn't last past late February or early March 2014...>"

<quoted text>Can Expanding Food Stamps Jolt The Economy?
by KATHY LOHR
July 07, 200912:18 AM
Through the recession, 4.8 million people have been added to the rolls of the federal food stamp program.
The federal food stamp program is being beefed up in hopes that it will help jolt the sagging economy back to life. However, economists are conflicted over how big an impact this increase will ultimately have.
Food In The Fridge
The government is spending $20 billion to expand the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, by about 13 percent. For Charmaine McCauley, a single mother of two in suburban Atlanta, this increase translates into an extra $45 a month.
"You know, just the staple stuff you need like bread, milk, cheese, eggs — those little things. That little extra can help with that," McCauley said.
McCauley had been doing well as a mortgage broker, but after the recession hit, she lost her job and her $680,000 home. About six months ago, she started receiving food stamps.
Amid the recession, 4.8 million additional people have sought out food stamp assistance. In February 2008, 27.7 million people nationwide were receiving food stamps, compared to 32.5 million people 12 months later.
McCauley now sells Mary Kay cosmetics full time, but she says the food stamps give her the extra help she needs to keep the refrigerator stocked for her family.
"It's definitely something that has helped our family," said McCauley. "A lot."
A Multiplier Effect
The idea of the stimulus plan is simple. The concept assumes people who get extra money will spend it — and that increased spending will bolster the economy.
"This injection of funds ends up being spent on food, and that has a multiplier effect through the economy," explains Ray Hill, professor of finance and economics at Emory University. "As more people are employed in grocery stores, more people are employed to make the food, more people are employed to grow the food as a result of that stimulus."
Most economists say every dollar spent on food will result in $1.50 to $2 in stimulus. The problem, Hill says, is that $20 billion is not enough.
"Increasing the amount of food stamps itself is not going to have a major effect on the economy. You get a good value for the money in the sense that each dollar is highly stimulative," said Hill. "But it's a drop in the bucket compared to the total size of the economy and the total employment in the United States."
Increasing Stability
The total cost of the federal stimulus plan is $789 billion. It is difficult to measure the effectiveness of the plan, but Mark Zandi, chief economist with Moody's Economy.com , says the food stamp increase is a good, quick way to create spending.
"If the stimulus is working, along with all the other things policymakers have done, we should see a more stable economy by the fall and, hopefully, we start to see a bit of growth in 2010," said Zandi. "I don't think even under the best of circumstances we're going to come roaring back. But I think we are past the worst of it, and hopefully, we have a more stable economy later this year and into next."
Zandi says spending federal dollars on food stamps, benefits for the unemployed, aid to state governments and infrastructure improvements provides the best chance of stimulating the economy out of the recession.
Others fear too much of the stimulus money will not be spent until 2010 or 2011, and by then the economy is expected to begin turning around on its own.
Try again. You are batting ZERO. Nothing in there about the Obama administration changing the eligibility requirements. The only recent president to do that was.....wait for it......Bush.
