    Once we go over the "bump" there will be almost 10 more Dems in the house and 2 more in the senate (where the filibuster may be weakened in our favor), tax rates on the rich will have automatically gone back to Clinton era levels, which a majority of Americans won't mind, tax rates on everyone else will also have gone up, which a majority of Americans won't like, but blame the GOP mostly for, and major spending cuts, many of which will affect everyday people, will kick in, which will also displease most Americans and which they're also likely to blame Repubs for. All of which will put Obama & Dems in a stronger position.

    For a time. Eventually, Americans will blame them too. But hopefully, Repubs won't have the stomach to wait that long. Both sides will have to compromise. But hopefully, it will be Repubs who cave this time.
