    ...and I don't disagree about "going off the cliff."

    But I get the feeling that people have no idea what this (extremely simple) negotiation (pre-2013) is about. All that crap in Geithner's list, above, is a bunch of kabuki to distract the people, as usual.

      Seems pretty clear that Boehner is setting up for another debt limit fight, so if they can't get what they want now, they can try to do it later.  Some of these proposals seem intent on forestalling that now while the pres has the most leverage.
