  •  The Democrats have already caved. (6+ / 0-)

    The affordable care act is based on republican proposals, the budget is based on republican cuts the problem is that republicans view every compromise as an incentive to move their demands even further to the right. What they've proposed to end this shutdown is the adoption of the Romney/Ryan campaign platform from the last election.

    "Remember, Republican economic policies quadrupled the debt before I took office and doubled it after I left. We simply can't afford to double-down on trickle-down." Bill Clinton

      Nothing! The R's got the verification (very much like voter ID's only much harder) and a small cut in revenues for Obamacare without any new revenues.  What did the Dems get? Nothing!  The Dems were holding 4 aces and the Repugs had a pair of deuces, and this is what we end up with?  Why wouldn't you believe the Dems won't just keep giving until the Repugs say, great, see you in Feb for the next round!
