    That UI extension might prevent some of that child poverty you reference, and reduce the load on food stamps as well. And that's just part of what he got in the deal beyond just tax increases on the very wealthy, rather than the pretty wealthy. (Of course, this assumes the House doesn't throw the deal out, which seems pretty likely at this point.)  

    I can pretty much promise you, too,  that John and Jane Voter weren't so enamored of that $250K cut off that they are happy risking a tax increase on themselves, which is the inevitable result of going over the cliff (or curb, if you prefer to think of it that way)
