    Wait till January 1st, and the Democrats will have the leverage. The Republicans will take a hit publicly for letting that date go by without a deal because they've been ridiculous with their demands. And we can get a clean middle class tax cut bill.

    It's as easy as that, but unfortunately Conservadems, Pete Peterson's consortium, and the worshippers of Bowles-Simpson want our money so they can have tax cuts that they don't need.

    If a Grand Bargain occurs that cuts any part of the Social Safety Net, you can kiss any hopes of Democrats sustaining any electoral momentum for a long while. Because they will be accused of being the party that cut it. And Republicans will have a field day running on that, even if the opposition was "forced" into it.

    The Grand Bargain must be stopped at all costs to protect the 99%.
