Can you not read the political tea leaves? The Republicans will cave.
And if not over 60% of the public want a balanced approach. The Republicans need to work with Obama for the good of the country. If it doesn't happen the Republicans will get the majority of the blame. It's in the Republicans self interest if they don't give a shit about what they do to the country with another BS budget battle.
The deficit is not that big of a deal right now. The % of GDP has gone way down since the first 6 months of the Obama presidency.
We can't cut our way out of the deficit. We need to grow our way out of this.
