123. That also aligns you with the GOPhers
Obama faces a very different GOP than Clinton did. The GOPhers have painted themselves into a corner by taking the positions of no tax increases whatsoever and all bills being budget neutral. Obama very strategically handed them a bill in which they must either compromise on one or both of those positions or face the wrath of the electorate if they choose obstruction. Assuming Obama can use the bully pulpit effectively, my guess is they will cave on the budget neutral part in favor of no tax increases. Obama then gets a jobs bill with no tax increases and appears to have compromised, when in reality he never did. That's how politics works. That's right out of Clinton's playbook. He understands that better than anyone.
