The President, Vice President and other members of the Administration have been pushing back at Conservative criticism and Liberal celebrations, saying the $1 trillion-plus budget deal, which is expected to pass ahead of Friday's deadline, was no victory for Democrats.

According to Fox News, White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney said “[Democrats] wanted a shutdown … they were desperate to make this administration look like we couldn’t function, like we couldn’t govern,” he said. 

He pointed in particular to the abolition of the Obama-era “parity rule” – whereby increases in defense spending had to be matched dollar-for-dollar with a rise in domestic spending. He said there is no ObamaCare bailout money, no money for Puerto Rico’s Medicaid, and no renewable energy subsidies. 

Mulvaney also came armed with pictures of a 20-foot-high steel wall, saying there are “several hundreds of millions of dollars” to install such a barrier on the border. He didn’t offer specifics but said, “We are building this.”

So is this a betrayal or a win?
