  •  They already did, though! (0+ / 0-)

    I understand the realities vis-a-vis posturing and hostage-holding, but the concurrent reality is that the Bush tax cuts ARE expiring. They already voted on that. It's a done deal. Democrats would have to vote to undo the existing reality to keep the Bush tax cuts for the top 2%.

    it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses

    •  My point was limited to the proposition (2+ / 0-)

      that Republicans are not going to do any kind of "deal" that doesn't involve extending all of the tax cuts. Things change after expiration, but I don't see how that gets us to emergency funding.

      Ok, so I read the polls.

      •  It's a fairly simple proposition (0+ / 0-)

        and Boehner's statements actually indicate a path that is consistent with what I propose.

        But the emergency funding in the deal I propose.

        I think it is pretty straight forward and eminently doable politically.
