    then... well, I can't refuse vote for him in '16, so, um... fuck. If he gives into the Republicans now, he faces few serious consequences to his career.

    Considering how rabid the rich are over cutting back on Social Security and keeping their taxes low, they may just get what they want here. What if the whole thing is just a dog and pony show? Could be that Obama gives the R's a sweetheart deal in exchange for sitting on a corporate board and making $10M/year after he leaves office. Jeez.
