Boehner and the Republicans are destined to lose on this. If they negotiate just one item, it will be listed as the primary cause of the coming recession. Anything they get will be held against them.
What they should do is allow Obama's plan to come up for a vote and let it pass. Vote either "present" or abstain, but don't vote against it. Anyone voting against Obama's plan will be deemed as voting against America. Pass Obama's plan so America can see how well it does or does not work. Only then will Republican/ conservatives be able to live to fight another day.
