      with the resolution an anticlimax.

      People know what their opinion is. it may change, but they have enough data to have an opinion.

        One could approve of the way Obama was handling this issue but strongly dislike the outcome. Who could have guessed that o couple of days after Boehner's plan not getting a single dem vote in any of the houses, we'd get a bipartisan plan that follows the principle 1 dollar in cuts for every dollar raised in debt limit but with the difference that includes Medicare on those cuts?

        Anyway, if you're right, then I expect Bush tax cuts to be extended and more and much larger cuts to be made during the budget discussions.

          Absolutely! Before and after ;-) or any permutation and combination.

          Anyway, it's not clear about the Bush tax cuts or anything else. I don't think we can trust that they're gone any more than they are now here to stay.
