    when we allow tax breaks that benefit the poor poor and middle class to be on the table in the first place..  The Bush tax rates on incomes below $400k have been made permanent.  The EITC was extended for another 5 years.  What do you suppose we'll have to give up the next time it is due to expire?

      If your theory is that the only acceptable result is one that doesn't make anything terrible possible ever again...well, I guess I'd say that's a tad unrealistic.
