ED SCHULTZ, MSNBC: "If I could just put it this way: the White House is taking the Republicans to the cleaners in negotiation on this. This is a huge win for the White House, if they can get the votes on this. And that's why Schumer is coming out, saying that there's going to be strong Democratic support here. This is a big win for the Democrats, no question about it. A big win for America. This underscores the vote on November 6th, there's no question about it."

he didn’t take the GOP leaders anywhere they didn’t already want to go
Republicans = The Washington Generals.
Thanks for the timely reminder that the Republicans should go over Obama’s Spending Cliff.
Washington is a cesspool
I saw that.
Ed Schultz on Dem channel says its a big victory for O and Dems should go for it.
Sharpton loves it too.
But R Trumka AFL-CIO says he is against it because it gives away too much to Rs.
What sucks is that Obama with lots of Rs help made this whole fight sound like it was about tax cuts for the rich, and that it is all Rs care about, that ‘the rich’ get more tax cuts.
So what Obama got is a bunch of spending extensions, what did the Rs get for that Dem spending? Extended tax cut rates from the first $250K of income that O demanded to $400K of income.
You know what would have put Obama and Dems whole game plan into a confused tizzy? For Rs to Offer to extend tax cut rates to ONLY first $100K of income in return for no extension of unemployment comp or tax credits for those who pay no taxes. No extensions of spending.
How would he explain that to his Dem base ??
Obama tagged Rs as only caring for the rich. Well Rs could have stood for deficit reduction instead of that, and let O own the economic results. But they never cared about deficits.
There is still the debt limit fight. So its not over yet
It's the ONLY way to get serious spending cuts and a few lower income democrats into the taxpayer lane. If we DON'T go over, all this country gets is more tax slavery. The cliff is the only answer unless we want to carry the entire, massive and growing by the minute burden by ourselves while the left wing freeloaders carry on with their sloth.
The House should embrace the fact the Senate has reached a deal, and say, “we will consider it, amend it, and go to conference.”
Too bad they’re not interested in what’s good for the country. Just winning at all costs.
Huge win for Obama = Obama now owns this economy.
“A big win for America.”
So Ed thinks taking on $20 trillion in debt is a win for America? The idiot does not deal in reality.
Wow, I actually agree with this prick....
Obama's retiring after this gig's over... we're the ones left holding the bag.
Ed Schultz is a slut.
liberals think that massive debt spending is good for America for some reason
