    Am I pleased with everything in this? No! To my mind, we should have held the $250,000 limit. Then again, this is what compromise looks like, young'uns! No offense to Tom Harkin, but we can't ridicule people like Richard Mourdock saying "Compromise is when people come around to my way of thinking" and then demand the same standard with a straight face... and merely hollering, "But we're in the right" doesn't make it okay.

    And if you're still pissed, consider this: If Boehner can't get this one through, not only is he dead in the water and out of the Speakership (and maybe out of the House altogether, because he will probably resign), but any non-Red state GOPher who votes against this package is going to be out of a job in 2 years.
