RepubliCONS stand their ground, Obama negotiates away anything resembling a decent worker friendly plan, the RepubliCONS stand their ground, Obama makes a deal only the the Grinch would love, RepubliCONS stand their ground, Obama thinks he has a deal with Boner, but the teabagger House refuses the deal, Obama makes an even worse deal giving the teabaggers all of what they want. Then Democratic Senators talk as if they will vote against the awful deal that hurts only working people. But end up voting for just another austerity program for middle class Americans and Obama signs it.
We've seen this already, we know the outcome. Obama is his own worse enemy.
