Only in Washington: Plans between the White House House Republicans on government spending suggests that they will cut a deal that allows both sides to claim victory while averting a national economic catastrophe.

The plan to do one thing and tell us something else was reported by the Washington Post.

In that story, we’re told both sides will compromise then say they didn’t.

“Biden could totally say, ‘We made a deal on spending, which we knew we were going to have to do,’ about the same deal where McCarthy also says, ‘We got them to give up this, that and the other thing for the debt ceiling,'” Dean Baker, a liberal economist, is quoted saying. “They could say both things that are completely opposite and hope they can sell it to their base.”
