    "but neither did the other side. The only winners in this legislation are the American people."

    Kind of a contradiction from what the left on here like to proclaim. Now I'm not saying the bill is good but why can't the left take up a position and stick to it? It's bad for us its good for us, make up your damn mind and show some backbone. Will he also admit the cuts are subject to future congresses? I won't hold my breath...

    Harry Reid is a creepy weirdo who will die from AIDS soon enough.

    The retarteddimocrats know they showed their asses in front of America, they know the C-span camera is there, that's why he's sounding so frickin conciliatory.

    He's right - the Dems didn't get all they wanted and will pay politically from their base. The Republicans didn't get all they want and will pay politically from their base.

    On the other hand, we avoided default which is good for the American people.

    We didn't get what we wanted but the winners are the American people? One might wonder if they had gotten what they wanted would the American people have been the losers? I think so, Obama wanted a clean bill with no strings to raise the debt ceiling enough to get him through the next election. Don't tell me that was for any other reason than pure politics. But had he and the dems gotten their way the issue of debt and deficits would not be front and center grabbing the nation's attention for most of the year. And that is a very good thing. Tough shit if the dems were not allowed to sweep the issue under the rug until after the election, you may now thank the TPers for forcing this serious problem to be debated and worked on.

    The issue was just swept under the rug until after the next election. Boehner, the TP'ers and Republicans didn't get what they wanted, either.

    In fact, they agreed to a second step that will place most the leverage with the Democrats.

    You gotta be pretty damn dumb or ridiculously blind to believe what Reid is saying here.
    The American people are not so fracking stupid to be unable to see that this bill is the result of a complete failure of both sides to do their job.

    I think you're out of your mind, you don't think the pols in Washington and the talking heads on TV are going to be talking about what's going to get cut and how the tax code might be revised from now until the election?

    Like to know why you think the dems have any leverage at all with the special committee, it'll have 6 dems and 6 repubs on it. Sounds even to me, nd BTW the dems haven't had any leverage up til now, what makes you think they'll gain any?
