Pretty damned sad. You can see where they were actually moving towards a middle ground until Boehner just chucked everything and went with his pitiful "Plan B" -- one can only wonder what would have happened if they had continued bargaining (continuing the trend, probably about a 1:1 tax/cut ratio, which in any normal universe would be an equitable compromise ... which may be why Boehner bailed, knowing his universe is anything but normal) ...

Anyways, a shame ...
