Leaders in Congress on verge of two-year budget deal


ASHINGTON — Budget negotiators were set to announce Tuesday an agreement on a two-year budget deal to set spending levels for the federal government and replace unpopular spending cuts with other savings.
House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash., are spearheading negotiations that intensified in recent days as a Dec. 13 deadline approaches.



Paul Ryan’s plan has been pretty clear, but I wonder much Murray and Reid will use this in order to protect vulnerable incumbents.
