    But there's also no doubt in my mind that if they united and passed the cuts, and repealed the millionaire cuts through reconciliation, that the combined headlines of "Dems pass tax cuts" and "Dems repeal millionaire cuts" are for better than either of the two being faced.

      Though I also think the chances that the headlines become "Dems flip-flop on taxes" are pretty good, too.
