    The "deals" on both sides stink like rotting fish. What a waste of a manufactured milestone! Any deal now sets the stage for meandering budget cliffs throughout the next 4 years.

    Jump the cliff - sequestration has always been the best alternative of any proposal leaked and better than any negotiable settlement with these people - and force Washington to create a stinkin' budget in 2013.

    Start the new Congress with no Bush tax cuts - forever gone - and pass much of Simpson Bowles minus its entitlements changes and reset to an honest to goodness baseline.

      I don't think we can stand it.  I know I can't.  I'm forgetting how to breathe.
