    A good deal, however, would address unemployment with actual economic stimulus and would offset the blow of the payroll tax cut expiring by replacing it with an equivalent tax break for people earning less than $113,000, the level where the payroll tax is capped.
    such a deal might have been possible.

    However, we live in this one.  Speculating about things that had zero chance of passing is pointless negativism.
