    about a company trying to draw attention to this issue. We all agree some compromise is needed, and everyone will complain about the result.

    I don't see the harm in this. If you don't like Starbucks business plan or their coffee, that's fine. But no reason to be so critical on front page here.

    •  Ummm... (1+ / 0-)

      Not all of us agree that any compromise should be made. There is nothing unreasonable about the Democrats' original position: income taxes revert to Clinton-era levels, long-term UI is funded at current levels, etc., etc.

      What is it that you want to give away?

        but I always see dKos referred to as a reality-based community.

        Obama has been quite clear about compromise- what that means remains to be seen. There will be revenue increases AND funding cuts.

        If it were up to me, all the cuts would be in defense budget, but I don't think that will happen at a level to satisfy everyone. Other options, maybe cuts to big farmers in the Farm Bill (protect family farms)?

        I agree repubs must define what they want to cut so Dems don't just negotiate with themselves about what to cut. However, like it or not, here will be cuts somewhere. I am not defending the cuts (until we know what they are), just trying to be realistic.
