The U.S. Capitol is seen in Washington. After months of dire warnings about the across-the-board spending cuts, Washington didn't implode, government didn't shut down and the $85 billion budget trigger didn't spell doom.

Still Republicans insisted there would be no new taxes, and Democrats refused to talk about any bargain without them.
