Who's been compromising on the budget up to this point?

Apropos of the government shutdown and the associated budgetary impasse, I wanted to post this figure (from here). Now, this was the situation pre-shutdown (so, ostensibly, this is what's causing the problem). Notice where we were relative to the goals of the two parties. Recall, Ryan is a Republican (and the red line is where we were going into this latest crisis).

So who's been making the compromises thus far?
