    Maybe.

    Republican Senators cave, proving once again their jobs are more important then your job.

    This is a deal?



    But there was discontent among Senate Democrats worried that the proposal did not go far enough in taxing the rich. The Democrats asked for a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden to have him explain the talks he was having with Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    "The caucus as a whole is not sold" on the plan, said a Senate Democratic aide. "We just don't have the votes for it."

    dems got their tax raise and entitlement protections while the GOP pushed back the spending cuts to Feb. The TPM members have to learn how to be adult. For shame.
