3. Cuts a deal and gets more than just the required rise.

Republican voters become even more stupid thinking their shill stand-ins for representation actually did something and got something.

4. If the President holds firm

Yes ...

It is early enough for them to "recover" from it politically for their reelection, but this is another vote that Boehner is going to chose to break the Hastert Rule on because they have a lot of other really crazy shit they are going to do between now and then.

5. I think the Tea Party

holds the world economy hostage, and when they can't get exactly everything they want, have a temper tantrum and crash the world economy and shut down the government. Yeah, that'll "learn 'em good"
