    The current deal would lock in huge permanent tax cuts and corresponding big deficits.

    Those who dislike the deal believe those big deficits will be used to force future spending cuts and entitlement cuts in budget negotiations.

    It's not a symbolic issue at all.

      Destroyed lives right fucking now. Food vs. medicine vs. rent for your symbolic victory about taking away some maybe, future, sorta, hypothetical, possible bargaining chip.

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