      And it is a given that Sequestration funding is the new normal?

      •  Not new normal, but Dems did long ago agree to it (0+ / 0-)

        for short term, that was a compromise but Boehner couldn't hold it together.

        •  Right. Boehner couldn't hold it together. (0+ / 0-)

          So, we compromised on Sequestration funding levels on a "deal" we made with Boehner.  Only thing is, he couldn't get it past his Tea Party thugs.

          And your position is that we are bound by our offer and get nothing in return since the Tea Party thugs get carte blanche veto authority over everything?

      •  No, they are listening... (1+ / 0-)

        The Republicans have to figure their own way out of this hole.  They are bargaining with themselves and each succesive deal is sweeter for the President.  He can't act without a bill passed by both House and Senate. He's not agreeing to any preliminary promises.  He will get his clean bill. McCain, Graham, Boehner don't want to be remembered as the folks who destroyed the world economy.

        The WNs still think he'll cave, so they're not anxious.  They'll find out.
