"Negotiating," Democrat-Style

You know the only thing dems are willing to cut is defense, so why negotiate? It gets cut in sequestration, but it also adds lower income individuals to the tax rolls which the Bush tax-cuts removed.

The White House has been hyping its #My2K Twitter hashtag in an attempt to galvanize supporters to contact their Congressional representatives to demand action to avert the fiscal cliff.  The administration estimates that unless Congress moves, the average family's tax bill will jump by more than $2,000, starting on the first of January.  The implication, of course, is that Republicans are once again standing in the way of resolving this problem.  Show of hands -- as the media breathlessly follows every minor twist and turn of these negotiations, how many of you have seen this fact reported?
