Budget framework gets cloture. Now we find out what's in it.

Apparently Nancy Pelosi ain’t the only one relying on the “we have to pass it so we can find out what’s in it” approach. After getting through a cloture vote in the Senate the word is coming out about one of the methods being used to get the deficit cuts Paul Ryan is touting. They’re cutting money out of military retirees’ cost-of-living increases.

I’m more than a little surprised about this. First, this framework winds up cutting less than the sequester would have and now it’s finding the cuts in military pensions? I’m having a hard time believing that was the place to cut back. Anyone look at the GSA’s convention funding lately?
