The Budget Control Act has been a defining feature of the federal fiscal landscape for eight years. Suddenly, it’s on the verge of disappearing for good. The House approved a two-year budget deal last week that does away with the last vestiges of the BCA caps, and the Senate is set to vote on the deal this week.
