  •  Repeal would have been possible (0+ / 0-)

    only in conjunction with renewing ALL of the Bush Tax Cuts.  That was a bridge too far for Dems, so we all get sequester as the consequence.

    •  the kabuki is all there - but much of it is driven (0+ / 0-)

      by how cheerfully our side (well the top dog therein) was willing to sell ... when the beltway "best hope" is a plan authored by a comission which failed at its task, sigh

    •  No it wouldn't have (0+ / 0-)

      time and time again, the GOP demonstrates their underhanded negotiating tactics.

      Give them an inch, they take miles.

      Club for Growth and Fix the Debt Right wing talking points don't change that.

      In a capitalist democracy - every dollar is a "vote" ... spend wisely ...
