    If republicans are involved, you know that women's rights are being eliminated.

    What's the catch....how many low income or middle class workers still lose on this deal....the republicans don't make deals unless the poor and middle class feels more and more pain.....

    What? No saying there's an agreement then pulling Boehner back and denying everything? no waiting until the 11th hour? no trying to tack on unrelated pipeline deals? Has hell frozen over?

    good, but raise taxes on 250k or more earners, and introduce Buffet-Rule. Yes, those who make more than 1 million dollars income should at least pay 40 percent of taxes, without any deductions. This is where this nation is going wrong for generations, generations, and generations. Obama2012.
