    Please, please, please, please, please be correct....

    From the link you posted:

    While House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has made conciliatory noises concerning the need to raise revenue, he also said, in an interview on Thursday with ABC News, that any tax increase on anybody — including the wealthiest two percent of Americans — is “unacceptable.”
    This is the part I heard..., after which I figured there would be more of the same where Obama would cave as usual, as he has always done before:
    “I’m open to compromise; I’m open to new ideas,” Obama said. “I’m committed to solving our fiscal challenge. But I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced. I’m not gonna ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000, aren’t asked to pay a dime more in taxes. I’m not going to do that.”
    Obama is always "open to compromise" - "wants a bipartisan consensus."  Problem is, the other side doesn't give an inch, and Obama gives up without a fight.

    I'm tired of hearing about "bipartisan compromises" that benefit only the super-wealthy, Casino Wall Street, bankers, corporations (esp. insurance, medical, & pharmaceuticals now, plus the holdovers from the Bushista years: oil, MIC, mercenary corporations), and I'm tired of Obama and the Congressional Dems going along with the Repuke demands with the whiny excuse "This was the best we could do...."  No.  It's NOT the best they could do, because they ALWAYS give in to the Repukes.  They need to Stop it!

    The Dems had two years of a majority to fix several problems (that idiotic passive filibuster via refusing to vote in favor of cloture is the worst) and pass a decent health care bill, plus end the illegal and unconstitutional wars, let the unconstitutional legislation expire with the sunset dates, not extend the damned things and add to one of the unconstitutional bills....  They didn't because they never fought back, never even considered a not-for-profit single-payer system, then gave us the weak, weak, weak whiny excuse that the corporate giveaway was the best they could do.  Whiny excuses is why they lost the majorities in 2010.  Whiny excuses is all we ever heard.

    I'm still looking for legislators like Bernie Sanders with metaphorical brass balls and steel spines....  If they don't stand for something they'll continue to fall for anything, including weak excuses.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
