Dems logic on this is that after most of the taxes are reset to Clinton rates, minus the Obama-care tax increases, that they can put Republicans on the spot with ‘tax cuts for the middle class’ and if they block it as in 2010 (different congress) then they will have proved what they accused Republicans of the past two years, ,’hurting the middle class to protect the rich’

This is a rather obvious trap.

The difference between this and 2 years ago is back then was O was not willing to let all those taxes go up with a Dem controlled House and Senate and a re-election coming up. So Obama caved exactly as I predicted he would. In fact I think he wanted them all extended at the time,.

Worse yet only the 'spending cuts' Republicans are whining about the automatic spending cuts being bad, the Dems dont seem to care less about them I guess because in that 2011 'bi-partision deal they appear to have protected their own Golden Calves, unlike the idiot Republicans who look stupid on it.

(Congressional) Republicans need to fight like Dems, to use their brains for a change.

The House Republicans are going to get blamed 24/7 by the democrat propaganda organs in the media no matter what they do. So they might as well do the right thing; let’s just go all “Thelma & Louise” over the cliff together.

After going over the cliff you tell the dems that you would be happy to lower taxes on the middle class but the dems own paygo rules state they need to be offset with spending cuts of same amount.
