Any plan projecting out more than 1 year is 100% BS

The only reason they included 10 years into the future is for BS spin purposes. No plan ever devised in Washington DC has accurately predicted the future beyond what is being voted on at that split second. Either Obama is cutting the deficit NOW or he's not. If the economy gets worse then this plan will be "adjusted" and the deficit reduction will fly out the window. All Obama is trying to do is to play clever so nothing can get pinned on him when the deficit explodes. They're thinking: it'll take a full year before they can refer back to this document and by then we'll be able to deflect any criticism by hyping the "danger" of whatever flavor-of-the-month "terror" the gov't wants us all to fear. The plan is either fiscally responsible now or it is not. Gee, this plan looks an awful lot like tax and spend business as usual.
