    He sort of affirmed my belief that this isn't great but it's probably the best we can hope to get; that going over the cliff is not really such a great idea, and that it's a hell of a lot better than what we could have gotten in 2011.

    Those who think that if this deal means it wasn't worth getting President Obama re-elected should look seriously at how much the GOP wanted/wants to dismantle the entire social safety net, and as bad as this chained CPI is, it's a lot better than some of the other cuts they tried to extract in 2011 and at the start of this negotiation.
