    The current situation isnt exactly great. A grand bargain deal could be substantively better. Permanent tax rate hikes(which of course this deal has), but also more manageable spending cuts, no sequester(or at least one that isnt as severe), and some debt ceiling hike.

    That would be better for the short term and long term  economy.

    And I fear I've veered too far into policy, and I apologize.

    Getting back to the politics of a coalition in the House. I doubt there are enough Republicans to make happen. But I would think all Dems would be on board, since the alternative is worse for them.
