    •  It's Grand Bargain on the cheap (0+ / 0-)

      intended to create enough pain to make the real thing politically possible. The fix is in--BOTH sides clearly want it, the problems being that one, they don't yet agree on the specifics especially wrt cuts vs. revenue, and two, the political ground hasn't yet been prepared to make it politically possible. But it's going to happen UNLESS the public gets involved and demands that it not happen.
