For it to be a compromise, there must be something given up by both sides. All the Republican Party is giving up is only taking out the parts they REALLY don't like about the Affordable Healthcare Act. And that is only, for now. They're not conceding anything on any other issue that the Democrats have.
There are no reassurances that a couple weeks from now, when the budget has to be passed, that there won't be other aspects of the Bill that they want taken out in order to get a Budget passed.
I'm sorry, but the Republican Party will have to do better if they expect anyone to take them seriously that this was a real compromise.
