Wouldn’t it be nice to see that word in reference to a single Republican agenda item, just once? The administration caves in to all Republican demands in exchange for a short unemployment extension for some workers. Does anyone really think that Republicans would have allowed unemployment benefits for 2 million people to expire and taxes on everybody to go up in order to save tax cuts for the wealthy? Greedy they are, stupid they ain’t. While we undergo the “Most Unequal Distribution of Wealth Since the Great Depression!” We are on the verge of borrowing $400 billion to pay for this crappy “compromise” so that Republicans can turn around after the first of the year and decry the federal deficit. The next words you can expect to hear from the Republican leadership is that we now need to cut Social Security benefits and Medicare in order to get this “horrendous” deficit under control.
