    Must be a funny looking session when everyone is on the same side of the table.  I guess Clint Eastwood's empty chair is on the other side.

    I still think that no deal is better than this one - that is, we would be better off doing nothing at this time.  (And I've contacted my Senators & Representative and asked them to vote No.)  In 2 weeks, taxes go up on everyone under current law.  In 4 weeks, holiday bills and the first 2013 paychecks arrive together.  With the new tax rates in effect, the public demand for middle class tax cuts will be overwhelming.

    We can afford to wait 4 weeks for a better deal.

    Yes, I know people who will lose UI cannot wait those extra weeks in early 2013.  That we should fix - but with today's GOP, I don't know how.
