Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

What am I supposed to be outraged about? [View all]

Someone help me out. All I see is how awful and terrible this deal is here on DU and on certain liberal sites. I don't see that. Do I think this deal is ideal? No. Not at all. But really, how is this at all bad? We're getting roughly $750 billion in new revenue entirely from taxes on the top, no cuts at all in entitlements, and an extension of unemployment insurance. It's really a very basic, bare bones deal. I don't get what I'm supposed to be so upset about. It's not a perfect deal, I wouldn't even say it's that good, but it's certainly not bad and if you would've told me a couple weeks ago that this would've been the deal, I gladly would have taken it.
