The Three Reasons

There are three reasons Democrats want to pass a long-term deal to get a handle on our deficit problem, avoid default and give businesses certainty:

1.) Jobs
2.) Jobs
3.) Jobs

There are three reasons Republicans are insisting on an irresponsible short-term deal that has no hope of passing the Senate. As John Boehner told a radio host today, according the New York Times:

1.) “Barack Obama hates it”
2.) “Harry Reid hates it”
3.) “Nancy Pelosi hates it”
