Compromise is a word coming out of the mouths of the President (Obama Urges Republicans to Compromise) and Iowa Dummycrats (Dems back tax plan, say Branstad must compromise).
They keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.
And the scientific community is united in that fact.
As for the Sequester and federal budget cuts (Cut Here), the Chicken Little's at the White House released, state by state, the impact the cuts would have.
It's rare, and nice, when the media actually do some work instead of report by press release.
Such is the case with the Omaha World-Herald -- Nebraska, Iowa officials still unsure of sequester cuts' effects
The White House being less than transparent?
