    If anyone is taking bets, my bet is that the White House decides to negotiate this, the exact same way they did last time. I see no reason to think that Obama has changed fundamentally since then.

      but the circumstances certainly have.
      For example, Obama no longer has to worry about reelection.
      The economy is stronger.
      The Senate is stronger.
      The GOP majority is thinner and requires fewer defections.
      Several notorious idiots in the GOP (Allen West, etc) have been replaced by sentient life forms.

      Soon we will know.

      Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?
