2. That's what I was thinking

I don't expect the Repukes to give another dime on higher taxes, unless there is a raise in FICA taxes as part of an effort to shore up Social Security finances, which would be combined with benefit limitations that our side probably won't go for.

3. Might be out of date by a few weeks, but well worth the post

It clearly illustrates the difference and relationship between the debt and the deficit.
