    What makes you think logical argument with statistics will persuade the gop to go along?

    Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Barack Obama

      Will reduce the deficit even more. But as you see in my comment below, I don't think the GOP will go along with this until hell freezes over. I was just answering the question of deficit reduction. In a rational discussion, something like a public option would be a great thing to keep on the table. But we are not negotiating with rational people.

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

      It will just make them look stupid.

      It will also make them chew up a few more days until The Fiscal Cliff.

      The goal is to run down the clock until the last minute.  At that point, whoever has the better issue framing will win.  Let's hope it's us...
