#1 "Shore up" > Yokay, I'll bite, is Boehner saying the Bammer needs to increase or expand the entitlement spending "that are the primary drivers of our debt"???

#2 I doubt Boehner means increase or expand. But taking the long view, I think that is exactly what Republicans should encourage. Not to rock the boat: but to sink it. Give people what they voted for, good and hard. Don't just compromise; grant Dems' every wish and stand aside, to Make. Them. Own. It. To stave off a repeat of this plague for a good long time. Whoever is in charge when the music stops will be radioactive forever - a far better time to be spectators than participants.

#3 I doubt much will be accomplished prior to the holiday recess. They have so little time remaining. Obama has nothing to gain from compromise. I fully expect the clock to run out and both parties will blame each another. Investment income from the boomers is the target, and they will get it through increased taxes and indirect taxes (gov't insurance schemes).

#5 Why does Obama have any motivation to reach a compromise?

#6 Washington (and the country) always seems to do better when its on recess or Champ is on vacation. That ought to tell us something.

#7 Wild Guess on deal: cut defense and raise taxes for the next 4 years and all proposed 'cuts' start in 2017.

Note: obama is in Asia requesting a credit line increase from the chinese credit card company.
