What some might call it a “deal” or “compromise” I would call capitulation to the Republicans. Just as we do not negotiate with international terrorists, we must stand up to the political terrorism of the Republicans in the United States Senate.
At some point, the American people have to know what kind of people these Republicans are. They may never find out if the Republicans can force their view point on the Administration, splitting the Democratic Party. The Republicans rant against the deficit, but they give billions, approaching trillions, of tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires.
