  •  Why did we give up so much in the financial cliff (0+ / 0-)

    negotiations if we had all the cards?  That's my issue...we have all the cards and are "running the show" and yet give up so much.  We were told it would never go above $250,000 and yet it did.

    Hell, SS was even put on the table by our side...Thank God it went no further than that.  However, the point is that our side made the offer and had zero reason to do so.

     So I just don't see how kicking the can a few months will an ultimatum to budget or we won't raise it again as a fold on their part. Not when we have a history of doing basically giving them most of what they ask for, even if we have the mandate and they have none.
