Faint hope

All of a sudden I feel good about the budget. The gist:

"Families will pay less for their kids' education. Workers will get better training. We'll reduce pollution. Build affordable housing."

Layton said that under the proposed agreement, small and medium-sized businesses will keep their tax cuts but tax rates for large corporations would remain.

"This budget isn't perfect. But it's better. And it's balanced, and it includes tax reductions for small business. But it also invests in people and our environment," Layton told reporters.

Layton said details were still being discussed between the two House leaders of the respective parties.

I wonder if it will pass.
