    IMO, it is unrealistic to believe there won't be a deal. The GOP is aware of what they are rsiking should they push too hard and the Democrats need to present a plan that works for everybody. I'm sure there will be posturing and chest pounding, but in the end (and hopefully not at the last minute), an agreement will be reached.
