    And what decisions there can be? A year ago, when a debt ceiling was lifted, reduction of expenses from the 2013th was a main precondition. It can be cancelled now? But same there will be the real clownery. Besides, I don’t think that not reduction of privileges will exclude falling of real gross domestic product (if to take away real inflation). Simply gross domestic product will fall together with dollar. There is a month to the next raising of a debt ceiling, and Chinese already say that will get rid from tresures.
