That is what the Post effectively told readers in a front page article. It told readers:

"If both sides agree, that measure [a short-term agreement on the debt ceiling] could also include some tax and entitlement changes, such as ending breaks for corporate jets, raising the Medicare eligibility age or changing the measure of inflation used to adjust Social Security benefits. However, the largest tax and entitlement changes are likely to be left until next year."

"Entitlement changes" mean cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

The piece also refers to the "soaring" national debt. Serious newspapers reserve such terms for the opinion pages.
