    Things are flying around in so many directions it's really tough to make sense of the changes.

    Actually it's going to be tough to assess the real-life and the political consequences until we we how real folks' tax bills are affected and how things play out in February. And in March, when the current Continuing Resolution expires.

    And the House still has to buy into this.

      is that they also provide something for everyone to complain about.

      Really it'll be about who gets screwed, how badly, and whether they can afford it.

      People who don't have much to begin with can't afford to lose very much. So if they're affected, even in small ways, then the "compromise" will have been a giveaway. And that seems to be the trend since...well...since forever but particularly over the past 12 years.
