Harry Reid says Speaker Boehner can take it or leave it. But take a closer look. Reid says Dems have agreed on cuts of $38 billion. I’m not sure anyone outside of a few people in DC are going to care whether it’s $30 billion or $40 billion in cuts (unless your job or program is in that extra $10 billion that gets slashed) but if the Democrats are all the way up to $38 billion, kind of hard to see how Boehner isn’t getting most of the pie that was on the table.
