"The sausage is nearly made. The deal is almost done. Shutdown has been averted. Again. For now. The process wasn't pretty, and progressives are justifiably disappointed that Democrats gave up on the millionaire's surtax -- which had overwhelming public support, even among the wealthy -- in exchange for keeping the payroll tax break for middle- and working-class families. Oh, and avoiding a shutdown. Not that they'll get any credit for it, as Boehner's already claiming it's not really a concession." (12/16/11)
