    you have to change existing law.  To do that you need the President's signature.

    Obama is totally in control.

    Obama can argue that the laws passed by the Republicans (end of Bush tax cuts and sequester) will all go into effect 1/1/2013 just like they wanted.  They passed these laws so let them live with them.

    They don't really want to live with the laws they passed so Obama can demand whatever he needs in exchange.

    Brilliant of Obama to handle it this way.
