    are still up in the air. The debt ceiling and continuing resolution for government ops run out in 60 days.

    Without the tax rates to use as leverage, Democrats will be in a terribly weak negotiating position when the GOP calls for cuts to S/S and Medicare and takes the whole US government hostage.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.
