44. No, he didn't have make any damn deal with the Repukians.
He failed to take his case to the people and chose to make a BACKROOM deal without even the support of the leadership of the party. He should have had meetings with the entirity of the party representatives and layout a strategy to achieve their goals. His failure is why so many of Democratic Representative are in open revolt. He has not only blow the legislation, he has undermined the Democratic Party as being as dysfunctional as the Keystone Cops.

If this is what eventually transpires it will be the PYRRHIC VICTORY OF THE CENTURY. The taxes will not be increased on the wealthy, Social Security with be a basket case and starved to death and there will be no recovery in site. The 2% cut in FICA taxes also applies to businesses and will only hasten its destruction. The very thing that Republicans as representing the interest of Big Business are dedicated to destroy. Victory? Hell this is a massive capitulation. Compromise? Total capitulation for something that could have been obtained without massive concessions. The workers 2% reduction will be the most expensive reduction in taxes they have every had shoved up the rear end.
