    ...that should be the date the is agreed to as far as increasing the debt ceiling. Why? Because the last time we had a deadline facing us with a lame-duck Congress in charge we got...the sequester.

    If Democrats can force Republicans to agree to a debt ceiling that is good past Jan. 1, 2015, so that the newly elected Congress from the 2014 elections are in charge at the time, there will be a lot less leverage by outgoing Republicans to try to do as much damage as they can before they go.
