This whole thing is so typical of why I can't vote for democrats. Their idea of compromise is "do what we want you to do". They have no interest in compromise, they never have.
The plain fact is the Dems want to keep spending. They won't pass a budget, they won't talk about spending cuts, etc., etc. They just want to tax the rich more, which won't do shit, and keep on spending money they don't have and then blame it on the R's and stupid people will buy it.
