  •  They would Move the Goalposts (8+ / 0-)

    If the Democrats DID offer concessions they would just move  the goalposts. If this is a Stock Market manipulation play where they are seeking to drive the market down 5%, they will not be molified by ANYTHING.
    All concessions are not only destructive in the long run to furnishing enought funding for the mission of government, but they are going to be futile, because this is likely NOT really about spending levels, but about insider trading.

    It would be lovely if we could reorder the government agencies so that the NSA, with all its resources, social network analysis and code breaking ability, works for the Securities and Exchange Commission, and ask them to look back at the last year of data to identify the financial interest of those in the House.

    To Goldman Sachs in according to their desires, From us in accordance with the IRS.
