The Republicans pass a bill that extends tax cuts for everybody under 250k with minimum payments for everybody so everybody has skin in the game. Then they pass a bill that extends the tax cuts for all small business Chapter S between 250k and 1 million. They then pass a bill that closes tax loopholes for everybody knocking down a million plus. Next bill lowers C Corp tax rates while closing all kinds of loopholes and special giveaways. Then send them to the Senate one at a time.
Same for spending.
Why not hold firm on low tax rates for rich? The “fiscal cliff” puts a damper on government spending, which hurts Dems more than Repubs. Obama will crack.
