I agree. The GOP will be dog meat with its base if they raise taxes and the economy will tank. The GOP should ride this thing right over the cliff and take the heat. They have 2 years to recover from the blame and will be in the drivers seat to force the necessary cuts. I figured out my tax nut at the increased rate and will be thrilled to pay it while I watch all the hypocrites feel the pain.
Why should the GOP do exactly what the kenyan wants? He wants to drive the bus over the cliff and blame the GOP.
Barry wants all the Bush Tax Cuts to expire so he can ride to the rescue in January with the Obama Tax Cuts plan. He will be free to pick and winners and loses then.
It’s far better for 2014 for the GOP to agree now to the Obama Tax Increase plan on the “rich” and let it crash the economy.
If they're tired enough, they'll up and deal - and then let themselves be primaried off to the old pasture.
