    I don't think they'll have the pull to do this again, and I don't think the GOP leadership will let them. But I do sure hope they try, for the damage it'll cause the GOP both internally and externally. It'll give Obama & Dems the leverage they'll need to make the next showdown be about ending the sequester and increasing spending, not extending it and further cutting spending.

    Obama now has absolutely no reason to offer to cut entitlement programs (not that he ever had such a need IMO). We need more spending, and more tax revenue to pay for it. You want to "broaden the base"? Fine, then start at the top, where it's currently way too narrow. How about that millionaires tax at last? And high speed rail, better schools, more green energy, etc.

    You know, a viable future.
