Can’t GOP members of the House and Senate take a cue from Obama and just vote present on his tax increases? The GOP will be pilloried by the media and White House for supporting tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires if they oppose these tax hikes. So just give Obama what he wants and watch what happens. We know that his tax now and maybe cut latter plan will fail, cause unemployment to go up, increase the deficit and further extend the recession. Why be a party to that? The GOP will be blamed regardless as their obstructionism cause things to get too bad before Obama’s fix etc. However, if they do nothing just let Obama get what he wants the Democrats will be forced to take the consequences.

I think you can vote “present” in the Illinois state legislature, but can only vote yes or no or be counted not present at the Federal level. Anybody know for sure?
