    sequester is put off for one year and that its replacement is one dollar spending cuts and one dollar revenue, I don't have a problem with the Deal.

    Right now there is $600 billion revenue going from $400/$450 thousand as oppose to $700 billion if it was $200/$250 thousand.  

    If replacing the sequester with one dollar spending cuts to one dollar revenue then the total revenue/tax increases with this deal will be closer to $1200-1300 billion which is okay.

    If that is the case then I am ok with this deal.
