Tough Act to Follow?

So I guess all this talk about the Democrats getting tough with the Republicans and standing their ground on taxes and spending was just that: talk.

Senate Democrats are now considering dropping their demand that a payroll tax holiday for workers be offset by imposing a small surtax on millionaires, according to Democratic aides — resigning themselves to the fact that Republicans won’t lift their filibuster if the surtax stands.

I seriously believe the Senate Democrats could be mugged through the mail.
