      It doesn't kick the unemployed to the curb and taxes go up. Really, though, Republicans got 100 billion in tax cuts that Obama campaigned against and didn't have to give them, while leaving the Pentagon sequester as out only remaining piece of leverage, so it's a mixed bag as far as I'm concerned.

      •  The leverage is in being seen to defend (2+ / 0-)

        Popular spending that people don't want to be cut. Any deal would be imperfect but this one gets a Democratic B grade for me to the Republican D.
