        There is a lot of outrage on our side for "giving up leverage" and not tackling all of the major fiscal issues facing us, like the debt ceiling and sequestration, and instead focusing mainly on the tax cuts portion of the deal.  Here's what I don't understand:  For the last month, isn't this exactly what our side has been advocating for?
        at some point in the not too distant past, it seemed there was a consensus on this site that the prez and his party push the house to pass the old senate bill making middle-class tax cuts permanent and letting the rest (sequestration, etc) go until next congress
