    It's true that there are bright spots, and perhaps the cynicism of years too close to politicians misleads me.  However, here we are fighting to preserve a Heritage health insurance idea implemented by a Democratic White House and Congress, and applying austerity as the solution to a truly terrible economic crash (caused by neo-liberal ideas and gross criminality by our financial sector - with no significant prosecutions).  And that's just for starters.  Are there any other Republican wish list items on the horizon?  How about a "grand bargain" wherein Social Security and Medicare get cut and taxes get reformed to lower corporate rates and reduce deductions that mostly go to the middle class?  And Democrats are seeking that discussion, while Republicans resist on the basis that it fulfills too little of the plutocrats' demands.
