Three views on the budget deal and moving forward...

What was that definition of insanity?

All 3 POVs are up at Huffington Post and worth reading:  Robert Reich - "Why the Right-Wing Bullies Will Hold the Nation Hostage Again and Again," Robert Creamer - "Why Last Week's Deal Reduces Republican Leverage in the Budget Battle" and  R.J. Eskow - "Why Progressives Keep On Losing and the Right Keeps On Winning."

I hope Creamer is correct, but I'm concerned that the points made by Reich and Eskow appear to be realistic rather than alarmist.
