    For the last four years 'negotiating' with republicans has meant democrats open with the offer they think republican will most likely accept.  Usually it's an item the republicans have been vigorously demanding.  The republicans immediately reject the offer as inadequate and commence their little dance routine.  'Not negotiating' means asking..."okay republicans, what are your demands for a permanent solution to this silliness?"  

    You have the right to remain silent. If you waive that right you will be accused of class warfare.
