    Unfortunately, I think it's much worse than that. I think what Sam o was saying was that the expectation of the deal passing was impacting bond markets. But obviously some are at the ready to slip in the knife and give it a twist. I was against the government borrowing money to finance my tax cut when Bush did it and I'm against it now. Last week everyone was talking a out our dire future and the austerity required to save us from becoming a banana republic. This week it's Christmas again, compliments more borrowing from China Inc.

    Is there a chance of this ever happening? Spend, spend, spend, thats all politicians are good at (Rep & Dem's).
