    There area easy harmless ways to settle the crisis du jour.  House Dems and Republicans willing to seal a deal should get something on the table so the public can get behind a tangible option.

    Otherwise, sequestration looks like a fine close for 2012 IMHO. A bad deal for no good reason will be a disgrace.  Get those defense cuts underway and the threat of increasing taxes will wake up the middle class choir.

      If they want to screw us over, they need to do so publicly.

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
