    you all have to stop letting yourself get wrapped up with things Republicans don't care about. Republicans don't care about unemployment insurance, get it? They'll gladly give that up for something they really do care about: Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Food Stamps. The big shit.

    The point is Republicans would have conceded UI easily...they always do because that's a small fish for them. They'll throw that back in the water every time. Do you ever hear them out campaigning on "Remorming Unemployment Insurance" No. Because they don't give a shit about that. What they care about is cutting entitlements and keeping taxes low on rich people.

    So stop letting yourself get rolled with "oh no...what about the unemployed." The GOP will always give you that because it means nothing to them. All we had to do in this case was jam them on taxes and then they'd throw in unemployment insurance gratis because its insignificant to them.
