Let's think about this strategically, folks.  We have elections coming up that will be vitally important to this country, so we need to consider which sort of optics are going to help, and which are going to hurt.  Hint:  giving the democrats the opportunity to portray the GOP, once again, as a bunch of heartless meanies is not going to help.

Agreed.  Each of the renewals the last four years were offset with cuts elsewhere in the budget.

The same thing will happen in January:  unemployment insurance will be renewed, funded by offsets.

So the only real question is whether the GOP will end up having to capitulate to the democrats after an obstinate refusal to consider anything at all, or will end up being seen as a group of principled pragmatists who are not insensitive to the plight of the unemployed.
