102. Well they'd better come up with something before Dec. 31st!
something to get the republicans to agree to.

I don't see how that can happen with neither side wants to compromise, because that's seen as being "weak".

and who loses in all of this? the poor and middle class. the rich will stay rich no matter what happens. but the poor will get poorer after jan. 1. but hey! at least we stuck to our guns, right? cut the baby in half!
