  •  I agree, but I think this is just theater (0+ / 0-)

    The Republicans won't agree to any hike, so Nancy can say she met them halfway but they wouldn't budge.  Not that anyone will care, but possibly David Brooks will throw her a bone in one of his both Sides Do It columns.

    Hopefully the Democrats will just let the damn cuts expire, then they can negotiate new middle-class friendly cuts with the GOP.  Since these will be framed as cuts instead of the current framing of tax increases on millionaires, they'd have at least a chance of passing.  But honestly, best strategy is just let the current cuts die then start over.
