I have might have a bridge to sell  to anyone who actually believed that anyone in Washington, regardless of party, is ready to deal with our budget, from the President on down.  And this is not one of those occasions when Washington "got it right," because everyone is pissed off; it's quite the opposite.  Well hang on.  The wealthiest among us have gotten mostly what they've wanted from Washington, and they have the receipts from all of their spending on the '10 elections to prove it.  What is clear is that we can do nothing that would infringe upon their ability to take (and occasionally make) more money from the rest of us.
