And this estimation is conservative, based on sober economic assumptions and the dug-in tax and spending positions of the two parties, both powerfully abetted
by lobbies and special interests which fight for every paragraph of loophole
ridden tax code and each line of a grossly bloated budget.

What is the "dug-in tax"?

@PennyChan,
Dug-in means firm or inflexible and is referring to the positions on tax and spending.

@PennyChan,

Yes. Dug-in positions, not dug-in tax.

The metaphor refers to soldiers "digging-in" or forming trenches etc. to defend a key location in a battle.
