48. "grand bargain"....or, grand fuckin' ?
"...set-in-stone spending cuts but only the possibility of future revenue increases."

....let me get this straight, the Republican tax breaks are in a 'lock-box' and our Social Security and Medicare are going to be gutted?

"All cuts," the aide said. "Maybe revenues some time in the future." what point does the actions of the Prez make him a Republican?....
