Hopefully you will address both of my responses...<quoted text>
The most famous compromise was the Missouri Compromise which extended slavery for another 40 years. It wasn't until the far right under Lincoln and the far left under Davis decided the time for compromise was over. Had they continued to compromise, the world would be a very different place.
In my real world, compromise means win-win. In the political world it seems to be either lose-lose or win-lose.
So, take a shot. What would be a compromise that would be a win for both sides?
Another thought here...another "compromise" would be the keeping of the promise Obama made...you will be able to keep your present insurance...so I say...Obama, make it so...stand on big business and make them follow your claim.
