    That the deal has already been made and this is all just theater.
    The one thing that gives me pause is that Boehner is up for re-election as speaker in early Jan. (the 2nd?) and won't want to announce a deal that has any tax raises in it until after he has been re-elected.
    I thought for quite a while that we'd go over the "cliff", and then shortly after Boehner's re-election, a deal would be announced. I'm just not sure of the timing now. The banks really want to avoid the cliff, and we know who runs things in DC, so a deal before the deadline won't surprise me as much now.
