Try like, 45ish days.
The "deal" was to get an extension until the next crisis, at which point they will smell blood in the water and expect more concessions, regardless of whether the LAW was legally passed in both houses, signed into LAW (there's that pesky word again), challenged and upheld in the Supreme Court and litigated in a national election which was won (again).
And as far as Obama not letting his legacy go? Even though he's said he won't use it, he could easily use Section 4 of the 14th Amendment to keep the government from going into default. He won't have to though, because the Democrats will always have enough votes in the Senate, and any bill that comes through from the House that Reid doesn't like, he can just table.
There's literally no footing the Republicans have to stand on.
