This Is The Definition Of Compromise According To Congress

Can someone please explain to me how the final deal to avoid the fiscal cliff (on the far right) is a compromise between any of the other deals? If the supposed goal of this negotiation is to help solve the fiscal crisis, how exactly is an anemic husk of a bill supposed to do that? I mean, look at Boehner #2 and Obama #3. They were practically the same thing. Did their deals get lost in the holiday shuffle or something?
