    Exactly.

    Now the senate is going to stay in and grapple until they come up with a solution. If only they'd lose contact with the press.

    This isn't completley true, most of these "Cuts" wouldn't take effect until 2014 or later..... that would be a shell game, not a compromise.

    They did the same thing with Reagan and then did the exact opposite. It's not going to be bought this time.

    What the far right can't understand is how clueless many of you Americans are.

    There is no "eroding financial position" - it's made slight gains, but has been more or less stagnant for decades.

    And, while Piketty and Saez lead you around with that ring in your nose and work you all up on Bush and those money-hungry Republicans... you might want to extend that chart back another eight years, when the top 10% (not the top 0.01%) saw an increase on the order of 80%. If you're concerned about income inequality, why the hell are you looking at 2000-06?

    Then I would suggest putting it in writing in the form of a debt reduction bill. You have a problem with that?

    What is the end game here? Continue to raise the debt ceiling, continue to tax "the rich" dispraportionatley, for what end?


    I think I read somewhere if you taxed "the rich" 100% you would have 11 days.... that's it....


    I think most of this is class envy and desire to get something folks do not deserve.

    Cut the spending. you want to open the wound further to stop the bleeding, someday, enough is enough, today is that day.

    Yes, next years Congress can simply write another bill overriding this one.
