  •  Talking with a GOP friend of mine (6+ / 0-)

    He's very moderate, a tax accountant who wasn't happy with Romney as the candidate.  He's very familiar with the complex tax code we already have - with special exemptions written in for individuals and businesses, tacked on to every kind of legislation.

    He agrees with me that this deal has already been negotiated, long before Election Day.  

    In fact, all the details in the tax changes, complete w/ special carve outs and tax breaks for wealthy individuals and corporations, have already been put in writing.

    Neither party would have been able to raise the massive amounts of money from wealthy and corporate donors unless the details that benefit donors were already in writing.  

    The agreement is likely already done, signed by both sides. Obama and the GOP are just going through the motions right now.

    Please stand by. I'm looking for a new sig line.
