Tax cut compromise

So after an election whose primary substantive message was "get back on the wagon", we have a compromise in which co-dependent Rs and Ds agree to buy each other lots of their favorite drinks.

One can have a serious discussion about the scientific case for more spending now versus starting the fiscal belt-tightening that must come sooner or later, but in strictly political terms, this is both parties giving voters the finger.
