Time to sign on the dotted line. Boehner's heralded plan does not reduce the dept as much as he's stated. So, what's his options: 1). Cut more spending 2). Compromise Fairly easy answer since congress and the President will not sign what's out there now. Polls also show that the majority of the people want compromise. If he does not compromise he can kiss his job as speaker goodbye (which might happen anyways, but at least he did the right thing). This ordeal has been good. It has made cuts in the programs which would not have been made. When has that ever happened before?
