    There's no deal unless Obama is caving completely and extending all tax rates. Remember that the GOP's starting position is to lower tax rates even further so to them it's a compromise to just extend all current rates. This is going nowhere, the GOP will crash the U.S. and global economies just to prove an ideological point. Boehner and some of the less insane would like to get something done but there's nothing Obama will ever agree with that the majority of House Republicans will support. Maybe once Boehner is officially reelected as Speaker, a deal can be done with primarily Democratic support but right now he can't take that risk. I do actually feel just a little bad for the guy but he's had it coming.

    Let's not let 2014 be anything like 2010. Republicans only win when we stay home!
