    a deal. That's why he IS still considering a deal, because merely keeping the tax cuts for the middle class and ending them for the rich IS NOT ENOUGH. We need the UI extension, we need the SNAP funding and we sure as hell could use some more economic stimulus.

    Now, I'm not saying chained CPI is the way to go to get what we want, but I can understand why Obama might still be willing to deal and negotiate to GET MORE STUFF for people who need it out of any deal.

    The good news is, the way Obama's played this means we CAN probably now make a deal that gets us more stuff in return for something much more palatable than the CPI deal. I'll bet we can get stuff for simply reducing, or eliminating the sequestration on military spending.

    This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: []
