If the deal is as reported here, the Left is going to throw a major tantrum and will never accept.
- No increase in rates, only closing loopholes
- Eeeeevil Rich does not start at $250K
- Cuts in SS/Medicare are a non-starter
Unless he can head fake them all by cramming through some sort of gun control measure Barry’s got trouble to his left on this.

Amnesty is next. I expect a big roll out during the SOTU. The kenyan just leads Boehner from one crisis to the next.
There is a rate increase coming, according to the blog leak.
Boehner offered a rate increase at those households making over $1 Million a year. I bet the compromise will be $500K for households.
The Speaker knows this screws small businesses, but the GOP lost the fall elections. Right now, we have no momentum, no public mandate, we don't have the Senate, we don't have the White House, and we don't have the rest of the Executive branch agencies (FBI, DoD, Justice, Labor Dept, etc).
There won't be any "cuts" to SS/Medicare. They are proposing to slow COLAs by tying the pittance of COLA increases to another index. They play these games now anyway! There was a long time where SS recipients didn't get a COLA for 2 years. The Govt said it was "because there isn't any inflation." I am not joking.
Given that the only person to Barry's left is Josef Stalin, I think he comes out pretty good in this. As the left ALWAYS does.
