These days the saying that “the devil is in the details,” is more true than ever.
The text of the balanced budget amendment (H.R. 2560, Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011) is available at the OpenCongress website. Unfortunately, the complex language obscures what the legislation will actually do (except for the balanced budget amendment–an uphill climb).
I’m waiting for the text of the McConnell-Reid legislation.
