According to some, Pres will propose raising the rates above $400K (not $250k), return to old SS deducts, drop the infrastructure $ and get a deal done this weekend. Leaves the debt ceiling extension and other cuts for later negotiations.
If Boehner and McConnell go for it, what say you, fellow Progressives?
IMHO, this is going as Obama planned. Everything we progressives hold dear is a bargaining chip for clawing back a few percentage points of rates on the very rich.
Maybe we'll figure out how to elect a real progressive someday...
