18. Exactly! He knew they wanted this fixed. They handed him an ace and instead of playing it

you could say he folded. But I don't think that is true. That would be presuming he was opposed to that fix without asking for 'compromise'.

Someone who actually was opposed to just doing that would have gone to work with his party, which holds a second ace, they have a majority in the Senate, offered to support their 'cause' IF, and ONLY IF, they agreed to an end to the cuts to Meals on Wheels and several other issues that are harmful to the poor and working class.

Such a person would fill the new bill with everything they could think of that benefits the people, knowing they will have to remove one or two.

Use the huge megaphone the WH has to let the public know what is going on, how the president is ready to propose 'fixing' SEVERAL things caused by Sequestration while giving Republicans what THEY seem to ONLY interested, making sure they can get out of DC as fast as possible to go play golf etc.

Every day until they cave, he should go before the public, telling them of the progress he is making, shaking his head, 'I don't really understand the problem, I AM GIVING THEM WHAT THEY WANT, but I also want SOMETHING FOR ALL OF YOU in return.

And do not give in!! Let them wait at the Airport because it appears these impostors we have in DC can't IMAGINE or EMPATHIZE with adverse conditions affecting others. The way to teach them a little about how it feels to be 'inconvenienced' is to inconvenience THEM.

But as I said, you would have to want to do this.
