    I think the opportunity to plunge the nation into recurring crises is at least as damaging as the actual events.  I will be tremendously disappointed if this short term proposal gains any Democratic support; we have tremendous leverage at this point and it would not only be bad for the party but also for America to accept anything less than a clean, long term debt limit increase (at least beyond next year's elections) and a clean funding bill.  It's unfortunate that the truly idiotic sequester will continue but it's probably the best we can get.
    The republican party is, by far, the biggest threat to financial stability on a global scale that we have faced in our history.  Engaging them as anything other than the terrorists that they are is only enabling their ideological crusade.
