Democrats and Republicans disagree on sticking points for budget deal

The headline:  Reid: Abortion issue preventing budget deal

The link:  http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/04/08/congress.budget/index.html?hpt=T1#

The summary:  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says that women’s abortion rights are the lone sticking point to getting a budget deal done.  House Speaker John Boehner disagrees saying spending cuts are the issue.

The reaction:  It sounds more and more like both sides are preparing to end the night without a deal getting done and parts of the government shutting down.  Democrats and Republicans have been meeting all week and at this point they can’t even agree on what they disagree about.

I’ve said all week I thought a deal would get done.  I’m getting ready to admit I was wrong.
