But this is all politics - Iggy rolled over because he doesn't have the public backing to stand his ground on any of the issues you've cited. Are we going to have a riot or an election over the EI formula? No (not yet anyway).

I recall the Thatcher inspired recession of England in the 80's. It took years for public dissent to raise to a level sufficient enough to make the politicians pay attention. People are hurting in isolation right now, and they're too worried to take action against their government. Give this thing a few years to wear people down and then maybe we'll see changes. But for now this is just the government treading carefully as usual, doing what it needs to do to keep themselves in power.
