WASHINGTON, D.C. (Bennington Vale Evening Transcript) -- To help quell the contentious debate over the debt ceiling compromise, and explain to disillusioned Americans how the plan actually works operates, the White House on Thursday released a visual flowchart that simplifies the complex process of bipartisan, Super Congressional decision making in relation to U.S. debt and federal budgets. The graphic is prefaced by the following statement:

After a long and heated debate, President Obama has signed into law a compromise that will reduce the deficit and avert a default on our obligations that would have devastated our economy. Although not ideal, according to President Obama, the deal bends over backwards to rub out wads of divisive political spew, while reaching around the aisle for a bipartisan happy ending.

To help explain this compromise, we’ve put together an infographic that explains what’s in it and what will happen in the coming months.
