They got their asses kicked thats for sure..

But is the same thing gonna happen all over again come Jan and Feb..?
My fear is that they're gonna say. “we compromised last time...no more” We’re taking it down this time

How the fuck does our economy get back on track with this hanging on our necks?..
If i’m a business owner am I gonna invest in expansion with this coming up again?

1. Stressing people out during the absolute dreariest time of the year

Dark of winter, digging out from holiday expenses, realizing you're on the hook for another year of obligations, including being unfailingly nice to every idiot who can possibly mess up your life. Let's add to the difficulty. Sounds like something they'll seriously contemplate, political geniuses that they are.

2. Looking at it in a Machiavellian way...

Or maybe, thinking of it not as a win-win for our side since it would hurt people but as a lose-lose for the republicans, I think the two outcomes are this:

1. Republicans play nice, which makes them look like wimps to their tea-party base, further pissing them off and making it look like Obama is the adult and has control of the brats
2. They do this again, hurting the country, but pushing the House into democrats' hands.
