11. The fucking is visited upon

the folks who lose their unemployment compensation, the seniors whose doctors tell them that they're cutting them off, and the people who see their paychecks hit with a double whammy of FICA tax holiday expiration and Federal income tax raises. The President made some intelligent (if painful) compromises with the Senate to get near unanimity on a vote, it's possible that he expects to do some further compromising with a House that is still not within the control of his party.

3. That's probably the least of their demands.

Both those items, effective immediately, and move the tax hikes back to a million bucks and above.

4. House will just be viewed as obstructionist.

 

And efforts should be underway to convince 20-30 Republicans to quit the party and caucus for the Democrats, instead.

Win-win here, and Republicans will be on their way to an extreme minority status.

7. No, they will try something much more minor. This is a test to see if they can bully Democrats

The point is to force the Democrats to give them further concessions AFTER Democrats offered them their best and final deal. They are more intent on winning further concessions at this stage than they are on any concession in particular. They are probing for Democratic weak points.

9. If they do that...

...the Senate should re-convene, amend the bill themselves to take out the cuts, PLUS drop the tax cut limit from $400k back to $250k, raise the debt ceiling for two years, reinstitute the payroll tax cut, and send it back to the Clown Chamber...I mean the House.
