A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters now view most members of Congress as corrupt. That’s up seven points from June and the highest finding yet recorded. Just 29% think most members are not corrupt, and another 25% are not sure.
Similarly, a whopping 85% of voters think most members of Congress are more interested in helping their own careers than in helping other people. That’s a record high for surveys stretching back to early November 2006. Only seven percent (7%) believe most of the legislators are more interested in helping others.

What's your point? Are you implying that there was no debate and all this huffing and puffing was just for show? I happen to think it was a legitimate push and tug with each side playing for a more positive outcome. I did assume they would get it figured out in time but stuff like this happens all the time.
I hardly think they had a deal a long time ago and were doing all this for show.
