While I might agree in principle that this was an attempt to bring some parity to spending and taxation and ultimately some deficit reduction, it wasn't going to happen under any scenario. This was a Pyrrhic victory, at best. The next tax legislation offering to roll back the automatic tax increases set for Jan. 1 will have so much other lard attached to it, Republicans and other conservatives will have shot themselves in the foot (both feet). Don't vote to rescind the tax breaks on those under $250,000 or be subject to such witherin attaks they will not survive any attempt at reelection to fight another day.
