    the dems need to hold their ground. for christ sake, they hold 2/3 majority. why are they negotiating? f___k the bipartsianship. people are suffering. if the gov't shuts down, the gop,aka tbaggers will be blamed. and considering the ire in the country right now towards them, this will help the dems in 2012. $40 billion is too drastic. especially when you realise the cuts would not be needed if the rich had not gotten their cuts.
