  •  I wonder if it's a head fake (0+ / 0-)

    to stop Boehner's whining about the president not being serious, not coming to the table, blah blah blah. I wonder if it's just another step in the "slow walk to the cliff/curb." The Rethugs won't accept this so-called deal anyway. The deadline passes, sequestration kicks in.

    •  That scenario is fine to me (0+ / 0-)

      Actually, I think we can just let the Bush tax rates expire and re-negotiate the sequester so there are less across the board spending cuts.  That all works just fine for me.

      Leave the big 3 alone.  We can't afford any more cuts to the social safety net.
