The headline of an NYT story told readers: "out of debt ceiling fight, some see a bit of stability on federal spending." While the headline might lead readers to believe something like the deal restrained out of control spending, the article says nothing like this. The article is referring to the budget process which has become chaotic since the Republicans took control of the House. It does not focus on the levels of spending, which were projected to fall relative to the size of the economy even before the debt ceiling deal.
