...but Congress suspends those limits each year with a "doc fix."

Yeah, that was what NPR was talking about a few days ago. It needs to go away, so that's fine.

I won't rehash the House/demographics situation again. When there is serious talk about Texas going blue, I'm not as concerned about the gerrymandered margin this time.

The other poster I think nailed it...let the fiscal event happen, then float a middle-class tax cut package and watch the conservatives squirm. Played properly I don't believe this is going to be a problem for Dems. The "cliff" has, IMO, put most of the cards in their hands.

I do hope those filibuster rules get changed. I often wonder if they are even Constitutional in their current form.
