I think its to late. Push has come to shove and people have been spotted for to much greed. What a sad time this is, thats so bad that the government has to stick their nose into slavery. The bottom line is if people wouldn't have been so greedy to begin with, none of this would have ever happened. But why pay someone a decent wage when you can profit off their wages. I have allready don't the math to caculate what type of income would somone need to just get by and we are sitting about 1/2 of what it needs to be. I can't argue that I don't be able to afford health care if I do get a full time job, but its nice to know that employers are going to have to start sending the love this way to ensure I don't call in sick.
Taxes are being raised because its the ultima ratio, same for extending healthcare. The people have gone as far as they can with hire and fire, less money more work, rising costs. Right now there are still Americans spending top dollars on your iPad and iPhone, but if they get hammered any more, consumption might slow down more and with it corporate profits.
Of course those in power could set themselves up that they can get their dollars straight out of the printing press (and to some extend those in power did), but what good is money to you, if the underlying economy and with it all goods and services collapses.
The very wealthy whom control both sides are not crying, they just realize they need to ease up a little, or risk everything
