Shameful: Senate fiscal cliff deal raises deficit $4 trillion over 10 years...

It's time to primary Senate minority Leader Mitch McConnell for agreeing to this pig of a bill...
New York (CNNMoney) The fiscal cliff deal passed by the Senate Tuesday morning would increase deficits over the next decade by close to $4 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
But that’s relative to where deficits would otherwise be if Congress were to let all the Bush tax cuts expire and keep much if not all of the other tax hikes and spending cuts under the fiscal cliff in place. Under that scenario, only $2.88 trillion would be added to the debt over the next decade.
