No one wants to admit its federal pensions and entitlements. If we only spent 300 billion a yr on defense it still wouldn't make up the difference.
SS & Medicare are not entitlements,you pay into those programs your entire working life. They are investments,not entitlements. Do I like the idea that there was some compromise,yes I do cause that's how government works.
Rethugs will have to bend our way for the debt ceiling.
