    •  He didn't mention CPI (4+ / 0-)

      Would you expect him to during the statement? Doesn't mean it won't be in the deal. I don't see him pulling it back. Tonight he mostly did a little "bully pulpit" to make the right fringe of House GOP look unreasonable. Perhaps they'll feel some pressure. But if they get a deal done in December it will almost certainly have the chained CPI.

      Watched on MSNBC and some Beltway talking head criticized him for not moving closer to the House GOP position. "That's not going to get a deal done." I'm sorry, what should he do, offer up everything the Tea Party folks want?

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
