  •  The Most Plausible Deal (0+ / 0-)

    The most plausible deal isn't the question. The question is what's best for the country. That would include:

    * Extending and enhancing unemployment compensation.
    * Consistent and significant cuts to military spending.
    * Complete elimination of the tax cuts we've seen.
    * Enhancement of revenue for Social Security and Medicare.
    * Managed trade.
    Given all that I've seen discussed there is no one in Washington that actually cares about what's best for the country.

    Probably we need to have a new election this spring to replace this bunch with people that know what they're doing.
