    Does anyone know what's really going on?

    I sure don't.  The WH is sending the Senate a smaller deal, then they are not.

    The political right thing to do for Dems. (and the Country) is so obvious, it hurts!

    Send the smaller 98% tax cut deal to the Senate, have Reid put it on the Floor and dare McConnell to filibuster the thing.  If he does, its all on him.  If he doesn't and it passes the Senate, send it over to the (empty) House and dump it into Boehner's lap.

    This is not political rocket science folks, this is Politics 101!

      Have McConnell filibuster a bill that would have 50+ votes otherwise.  Also it would be a great example for the Dems to fix the filibuster off of come the new congress.  

      The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.
