most people won't see it this way. They will see that Boehner rejected a deal. Doesnt matter what the deal was, whether it would or wouldn't hurt our current economic position or any other factors. The only thing that people are going to see is that Democrats proposed a plan and Republicans denied it.You're family finds it's income for the year is $100k, but you're spending $140k, and have $1,500,000.00 in loans and your creditors are knocking at the door. You're wife and several family members get together to reconfigure the financial situation and decide that they'll make you take and extra job increasing the house hold income to $110k and spend only $138k next year.
Would you agree to this plan?
