Deal for whom?
It's becoming harder and harder to see Obama's White House as simply run by bad negotiators, or that they are babes in the woods dealing with the Republican wolves and getting duped over and over again. Because it's starting to look like they end up with what they wanted all along.
It's just not what we wanted when we elected him.
This graph shows who benefits from Democratic tax proposals (left) Republicans (center) and the new proposal Obama hammered out with Republicans (but not Democrats, and apparently there is no room to negotiate any more changes--except with Republicans.)
Looking forward to a bunch of teabagger protests over the nearly $900 billion this would add to the deficit.
But I won't hold my breath.
More on this later.
