    but this misses the point.  Presuming that a bill even shows up,  they can kill that bill with 41 but presumably what they want is to pass legislation,  not kill legislation. They clearly don't have 60 votes for the middle class tax cut and I doubt they have 60 votes for anything else including stimulus or UI without this deal.  

    So they kill the deal and have nothing to show for it.  You think that is what they want to walk away with here?  A chance to say that they killed tax cuts? Landrieu?  I doubt that very seriously.  They will take the deal and for most of those senators this is all theater.
