Does anyone else think that Google+ growth is slowing down? Not adding followers nearly as quickly over at the ThinkProgress account.

Two years ago this was posted. Now G+ has more active users than Twitter.

Does anyone know why +Mashable News can maintain its page but ThinkProgress and pretty much all other news pages are shut down?

Mash finally got hit with the rename stick too. Follow +Wendy Darling, +John Hardy, +Rugger Ducky, or +Fleep Tuque for regular updates on Google's very inconsistently enforced policy on pseudonyms.

On Twitter, David Shuster reports:

"Hill sources: Obama has offered Boehner 'all spending cuts' now and is will accept 'efforts' to rewrite tax code in 2012. Epic cave-in"

Shuster says his hill sources are Democratic lawmakers who have been briefed on Obama's latest offer to Boehner.

Waiting until 2012 for the "efforts" to rewrite tax codes while giving the GOP what they want now would be a cave-in. Compromise can be fine, but that wouldn't really be a compromise. We need some compromise now from the Right, not a BS promise of "efforts" to look at the tax code in 2012.

May be hard for the GOP to keep their cuts-only approach after this.

It seems to me that if credit ratings were to have any real meaning, they should be given in numbers -- something like a credit-default half-life (number of years after which the rating agency estimates a 50% chance of default).

The lettering system currently in use seems more like it's designed to conceal information. (I'm thinking that the nature of the information is possibly something like "We actually don't have a clue how likely default is in any of these cases, much less numerically; we give good ratings out as political favors, and downratings as punishments.")

UPDATE: White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer pushes back on rumors:

"Anyone reporting a $3 trillion deal without revenues is incorrect. POTUS believes we need a balanced approach that includes revenues."

Why is it that this is even a crisis when, apparently, the Fed gave $16 trillion in secret loans to the banks? Shouldn't we be asking for some of that back now? http://sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/news/?id=9e2a4ea8-6e73-4be2-a753-62060dcbb3c3

Looks like the party is over for ThinkProgress on Google+. We'll keep you updated here in the meantime.
