      ...there really is no reason for them to give into anything Obama wants, because that would help our economy and make the President look good, which totally goes against everything they believe in.

      Obama seems to have the upper hand right now, but he needs the economy to get better more than the Republicans do, and so far no one can tell me why it is they should actually extend the tax cuts on the middle class or even try to do something about the sequester on defense.

      The Repubs WANT to see defense cuts so they can accuse Obama of being weak on defense. It all plays into their narrative.

        or change minds anymore.  well not enough of them.

        i've said the same things...  they have no motive for working with obama. nothing to gain.  everything to gain by continuing their obstruction.

        we'll see a rule change in the senate and that will put pressure on the house.

        -You want to change the system, run for office.
