"Interesting. Everyone is talking about some kind of tax hikes. So I'd say a compromise has been made. It's dishonest to claim otherwise."

Absurd. In one sentence you whine about "actual bill" vs hearsay. In the next, you jump all over hearsay?
Even you must be laughing at that one. Come on, admit it? -)

IF a compromise has been reached in which tax hikes are included, then that would be just fine. It has not happened yet and, again, my point, which you have, painfully, ignored, is that the same compromise a year ago would have gotten the GOP most of what they wanted.
You do understand that, right? You still can put common sense ahead of bitter partisanship?
Clearly, the GOP had a stronger position in last year's negotiations than they have today, correct? This isn't rocket science.

"One approach goes toward a solution. The other goes toward whistling past the fiscal graveyard."

In 2008, one approach, which saved our economy, was fought against by the GOP against their own president. Thanks to bipartisan dems, TARP passed and was one of the most successful financial programs in this country's history.
Solutions? Lots of talk but no action when it counts.
