    reality

    You see if you have a position and you waver from it to make a concession to the other sides position to move the country forward then that is compromise.

    Want to know what the America people felt on this one?

    Republicans should stick to their positions.

    Democrats should resign.

    It depends. If the opposition wants to destroy us, no compromise.

    There's nothing to compromise. Govt needs to step up and quit spending. After five years of debt reduction, we'll talk.

    Look out for their own interests first.

    It has to stop.

    Period.

    So if you want 5 trillion in cuts over 10 years but only get 2 trillion cuts over 10 years which will amount to no cuts over 10 years ... thats compromise?
