  •  They won't. (0+ / 0-)

    After Christmas, the Republicans suspect that you will get a little more serious.

    And that, in a nutshell, is why there will be no agreement. Sequestration was a bad policy formulated on the impressively stupid idea that punishment meted out equally to both sides would force those sides to compromise. Instead, Democrats focus only on the things that will hurt the Republicans, and Republicans focus only on the things that will hurt Democrats. Rather than give everyone a reason to work together, they give everyone cover for refusing to do so. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    •  hmm tax increases and military cuts (1+ / 0-)

      seem like a pretty big incentive for the Republicans to get serious, but perhaps you are correct.

      I have never been able to figure out if Fox is the propaganda arm of the Republican party or is the Republican Party the political subsidiary of Fox.
