The House GOP could pro-actively pass a resolution that would ‘lock-box’ all the middle-class monies collected from expiring Bush tax cuts, until a resolution is agreed to. I think the RATs secretly WANT the money, they have just found a clever way to blame the GOP for giving it to them. No thanks to the GOP leadership that went along with this plan in the first place ...

Exactly. They should have never agreed to temporary tax cuts. Huge mistake. Obama doesn't really want to extend any tax cuts. They need too much money. Is Obama's 250K threshold indexed for inflation? I doubt it. So like the AMT the dems will suck in more and more over time. so either way he wins. Either quickly if all cuts expire or more slowly if pubs cave. The pubs will cave because they do not have the votes to fight this. They know Obama is content to let all cuts expire. When pushed they will accept half a loaf.

So I believe it is fairly obvious how the tax side of the equation will end up. The real battle is on spending

That’s another very good idea. And..as Gingrich pointed out again, they are the ones in charge of appropriations. It could be done.

It really makes me wonder what is in the water down there...
