aren't there a few repub senators who might vote for this deal too?
it wouldn't take that many dems to pass it in the senate, i would think, even if there is opposition...
Is that the Boehner deal?
Not sure who is doing what at this point.
But my assumption is that we, taxpayers, will get hosed. I see no signs that Boehner or anyone else is serious about cutting spending if the cuts take place in the near term...they all want to cut spending 10 years from now....when they are gone. And the democrats cannot let go of the need to add taxes.
As a result, I fully plan to be disappointed again.
