    Jane and John Doe in the crosshairs, but I'm even more worried that the administration we just put back into office will go all Grand Bargainy on us, too.

      it?  I mean it's pretty easy to sit here and pre-damn the President for the Grand Bargain when you won't be the one directly causing millions of people to suffer. I get it that we don't want the President to compromise. But just like last time, there are people who will really be going over the financial cliff if he doesn't get an agreement. Maybe we would be better positioned to help get the support he needs to get through this negotiation instead of assuming he's just looking for ways to sell us out.
