The Washington Post thinks it's spoiling the ending of the budget negotiations. According to the Post, "No matter what the outlines are for a final agreement to lift the debt ceiling, the deal will include cuts to some of the nation’s major entitlement programs: Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security." Over at Beat the Press, Dean Baker takes the Post to task for the comment as well as some of their claims about a cost-of-living adjustment.
