Ultimately this is nothing new, nor should we be surprised that a deal was reached at the last minute. All this was, and continues to be is just
political posturing, right before the 2012 elections kick off, that way those who have been in the halls of power and were elected can go home and
tout that they were successful. It also shows that neither side wanted to take a political hit for a deal not being brokered. It is an orchestrated
dance, one side moves, the other counters, back and forth. This is not really something to celebrate, as this will happen again, and again. The
questions should be asked, and looked at, is what kind of deal was struck, and ultimately, how will it affect all of us in the long run. Cause in the
end results that is what we should look at, not if this or that deal was made, but what they are doing and how it affects the country.
