And watching -- and joining us now with more -- Fox News political analyst Juan Williams of the line how dividend.
I think they're gonna get a deal I think right now this whole plan B thing.
Is part of speaker Boehner is effort to try to get his troops in line behind a -- there -- people there.
Notably Jason shape it's that congress -- from Utah who's been outspoken saying he doesn't like the deal.
As it's being shape right now by Boehner pres Obama but the fact that they had met five times over the last three days that -- that they're going back and forth.
Is a clear signal they are on the edge of something here and I think that what you're seeing right now with this talk of a -- -- B being shot down by senator Reid.
Is that is the Republicans saying.
Hey you know what we know where did this advantage politically in this deal but we're not out of ammunition and we're gonna it's still make the case.
To try to force pres Obama to give us an even better deal.
What is up what.
Do you think that they will get a better deal from the president because right now if -- just focus on the income cut off on the tax increases would be 400000 dollars vs a million dollars.
And secondly doesn't this seem to -- the taxes are the tax rates are going up for at least some folks in this country.
I think so -- -- clear both sides now taken the payroll tax cut off details everybody's tax are gonna go up some.
But yes definitely for people who make more than the 400000.
The Obama -- I think Boehner is gonna come down.
So I don't think that that's gonna shift much.
But I think that they will get a deal and that the problem is here that Obama and the Democrats if they give up what day everyone cause that.
The change CPI another way that they index Social Security that's a big one for Democrats.
And it makes them less likely to want to make it agreed any concessions in terms of additional spending on infrastructure.
Are protecting the veterans the disabled in terms of Social Security the on extending the unemployment benefits.
So there's gonna have to be some meeting of the minds their date.
What did but do you think that the Democrats well I think again agreed to what the president's put on the table with the higher -- -- caught off.
For the tax increases because that Republicans don't want any tax increases or at least some -- -- and then the Democrats won't that it the president to stick to his original.
You know the plan.
-- But look I think -- one of the key things that happen even before what we saw this week and with all the activity in the optimism.
It's I think there's been a shift insight political psychology if you will I think people want a deal.
They want to deal badly and right now the -- -- are becoming less important because.
Everybody's focused on the idea of stabilizing the financial markets stabilizing this very fragile recovery.
Not creating a situation where.
People have a sense that there's more uncertainty I think Republicans and Democrats realize the private sector is complained about uncertainty.
Over the course of the last two to three years that's why they say they're not putting their profits into additional hiring and investment.
Want it was great to say thank you some nice to see they're -- very hurt you as well.
