    I hope the Republicans will wake up and listen to the American people and work with President Obama who seems to be the only adult in the room. I fully support the President's balance approach. We cannot only intent on cutting spending without added revenue. Get rid of those loop holes and reform the tax code!!

    Let bring some old memory: in a few years ago when Paulson drew took the beast by the horns and basically said "In the eventuality Congress refuses to vote in favor of this bail out, the market will explode?" Ironically, that was the ticket for the market to tumble when Congress stopped to play along. Obama attempted a similar strategy last week with the stress of a last day deadline but the Reps didn't think much and swiped his bluff. Well this time will probably not be easy if this next deadline gets broken.
