    Elections have consequences, republicans have put themselves in a situation where all their sacred cows are at peril at a time when they cannot possibly feel that confident taking a hardline stand. Democrats just do not have that much at stake in this mess so prepare your anus.

    Because throwing millions of people under the bus is not the solution.

    Unfortunately, their negotiating hand just got weaker. They should've taken the deal in 2011.

    Excuse me if the schadenfreude is just too delicious at least as far as the political maneuvering here is concerned, republicans do not have a problem with this mess that they did not bring upon themselves 100%. The incredible amount of political capital they wagered on kicking the can to this point in time and winning the election and therefore having the upper hand in this situation is mind boggling in it's stupidity and carelessness. They have played chicken with their entire platform and lost, pray you still have a party to peel off the road when this over.

    We GOP should have done the deal last year because it was the right thing. Boehner said yes then said no. Now, the Dems will say, "You will have to if you don't want to be destroyed in the election of 2014, by the middle class."

    They shouldn't. Obama needs to keep playing hardball and give the right wing trash the same that they have been giving to him the past four years.
