9. Why would we give back a done deal?

This is worth remembering, if you haven't read me saying it a thousand times already:

The expiration of tax cuts for the wealthy is a done deal. They are going to expire in January, the President has promised to veto any extension for the wealthy (he has also asked for a further extension for the middle class, but guess who already shot that hostage?), and Congress cannot override the veto.

In football terms, we outscored the GOP 25-8 in the fourth quarter, the two-minute warning has blown, they're out of time-outs, and President Obama remembers Joe Pisarcik as well as any Giants fan does.

We're going to take a knee, run out the clock, and trot off the field, and there is nothing Republicans can do about it.
