    Simple enough question. Obama claimed he would compromise with the House, meanwhile the Senate has stated they will do no such thing.

    Since fiscal initiatives are the job of the House, they'll have to go first and then we'll see. Whatever the Senate says doesn't relieve the House of their obligation. If they get to work on a deal, your point may be moot.

    Sheesh. Everyone know that for the house, lobbyists trumps all.

    The lobbyists can use the left over super pac money to lobby with.
    Legal per law and tax codes.

    No, it was a mandate to do as they are told by the voters: stop the two years of obstruction and engage in responsible governance.

    Getting less than 51% of the vote is hardly a mandate for anything. The republican road block was left in place for a reason.
