Yes, its good news. I watched the President speak afterwards. He made it clear that the riders around Healthcare Reform, the EPA and Planned Parenthood never should have been in there to begin with. I felt that he put the GOP in their place, yet did it with dignity and grace.

The Democrats agreed to a vote on the riders next week, which should pass the House with no problem and get stalled in the Senate which is only right. The Republicans got away with cutting taxes to the rich on the tail of unemployment extensions, this time their strategy left them looking inept.

It's like watching an endless miniseries. "Yes, at the last minute our heroes avert doom with a stunning compromise! But wait, tune in again next week, because it could happen again." Nothing but bread and circuses, and there ain't no bread.

Gotta tune in next week to find out. Wink But the heroic appearance of Lord Obama atop his chevalier Steed One is highly likely. I anticipate a nice broadsword duel, but I'll probably be disappointed.

No, what it accomplished, was ripping off the little people, 78 billion of much needed money.

I can't believe these idiots crashed the car into the ditch, and now they expect us to congratulate them for deciding which towing service to call.

What is even worse, is that they want to gouge the innocent bystanders (poor, elderly, disabled, low to middle income, etc) to pay for the towing service.

Yes you will.
Welcome: The President Of The United States.

This agreement between Democrats and Republicans, on behalf of all Americans, is on a budget that invests in our future while making the largest annual spending cut in our history. Like any worthwhile compromise, both sides had to make tough decisions and give ground on issues that were important to them. And I certainly did that.

Some of the cuts we agreed to will be painful. Programs people rely on will be cut back. Needed infrastructure projects will be delayed. And I would not have made these cuts in better circumstances.

But beginning to live within our means is the only way to protect those investments that will help America compete for new jobs -- investments in our kids’ education and student loans; in clean energy and life-saving medical research. We protected the investments we need to win the future.

I want to think Speaker Boehner and Senator Reid for their leadership and their dedication during this process. A few months ago, I was able to sign a tax cut for American families because both parties worked through their differences and found common ground. Now the same cooperation will make possible the biggest annual spending cut in history, and it’s my sincere hope that we can continue to come together as we face the many difficult challenges that lie ahead, from creating jobs and growing our economy to educating our children and reducing our deficit.

Politicians must make compromises. This can be frustrating, infuriating, but necessary. There is, however, no need to put lipstick on a pig. And that's what touting the "biggest annual spending cut in history" as a good thing does. More lipstick from Harry Reid in giving kudos to the other side. Instead of praising the Republicans, why not come out and say the GOP screwed rank-and-file Americans? Why not say the Democrats did what they could to slow them down, but that now millions will suffer because of the cuts the party had crammed down its throat to avoid the entire government being shut down? Hell's bells, the Democratic leadership could have even said they did it for the troops.

But no, it's kumbaya for Republicans bent on cramming yet more of its radical agenda down the nation's throat.

They ALL sleep in the same bed. Before the " historic agreement " they called out one another about their principles. Now they return to kissing each others A*S. Soon they will be on ANOTHER BREAK. What a country.

Hmmm. Can't see it or open it. What should I search for?

edit: Nevermind, I see it now. I'll see if it's on Netflix or Amazon Prime. Thanks!
