“Why counter offer? - just pass the bill and send it to the Senate.”
Seems so easy doesn’t it? It makes so much sense to do just that. That is why it will never happen.
We are counter offering our previous offer negotiating with ourselves. Stand up and say “no” and let Obama take it over the cliff with this caveat. When obama says “ now we need a middle class tax cut” — simply say —NOPE. Your deal— Your fault. Cut spending.Over the cliff is better than this cave in stuff.
