    The Bush tax cuts really do have to be repealed ("allowing them to sunset" will not be a passive operation).  Massive corporate subsidies also.  Military spending needs to be cut back massively.  etc.   None of these will happen without a fight.  The question is how tough the Dems can be against the GOP, and whether they can fight the necessary battles not only to prevail in near-term economic planning, but also prevail in the PR war leading to the 2014 congressional elections.  Dems have a record of letting their guard down.
