    There were 2 possible outcomes
    1) They fixed it before it happened or
    2) It happened, people freaked (mostly rich people), and they fixed it after the fact.

    Either way, it WOULD get fixed. Personally, I would almost rather it got fixed AFTER everything kicked in, so the GOP would be getting slammed by everybody and be frantic to fix something, ANYTHING, and just agree to whatever.

    Remember, they don't plan. They don't act proactively. They're just REACTIVE. Something has to happen first, and THEN they do something. Usually, they OVER react, and grab the first thing that looks like it might work and/or make them look good.

    Ever since Gingrinch, it's been either
    1) This makes the Dems look bad, do it or
    2) OMG DO SOMETHING!! Our poll ratings are sinking! Our donors might not give us lots of money! Oh NOES!!!!!

    There's no other thought process.
