Recap: Why the left hates the tax cut deal (plus some great graphs); why some general fund revenues could be good for Social Security; and why Senate Democrats don't want to vote on the debt ceiling.


1) There's no link in this sentence, but my guess is that the defeat of the DADT repeal bill makes the tax cut deal a lot less likely.

2) The latest issue of the American Prospect.

3) Some news stories are too shocking to summarize.

Recipe of the day: Three takes on eggnog.

I bet DADT repeal will still pass as a stand-alone. There are 60 votes for repeal: today's 57, Lincoln if she's not at the dentist, Brown and Collins. If there's one thing HCR taught me its that ultimately, nothing matters but whether the 60 individuals in the Senate can be persuaded something should pass. Not messaging, not money, not procedure, not tactics. The votes are there.
