    pf compromise is coming soon. At least not on the part of the GOP. The rabid Tea Partiers hold the reins, they think they just won a big one, the rest of the GOP are terrified of them, especially if they are up for re-election in 2014.
    They DON"T CARE about any consequences for real people.
    It's all collateral damage to them, and necessary.
    The President can keep talking and pressing his point, but ultimately people will just  tune him out, if nothing changes for the better.

    •  The teapartiers ARE real people. (0+ / 0-)

      They have just convinced themselves than the cuts their representatives are pushing will affect them exactly like they affect Democrats.  They don't realize that Democrats are actually working for them too.  But they will.
