  •  I hope Obama won't deal. (9+ / 0-)

    The administration holds all the cards. The spending cuts in the 2011 law are cuts in hypothetical budgets, not real cuts. They aren't going to have the recessionary effect that the villagers claim. And the real unpopular stuff - like not extending unemployment - will be a line item that the Pubs will be under tremendous pressure to change.
       Tax increases for everybody, or just for the 2%...Good luck on that, Bohner.
