Opposing Democrats, Boehner and Kristol on Taxes

It's time to get beyond posturing. Start with Simpson Bowles and call Obama's bluff. If Republicans really think these taxes will harm the economy, then let them rip. They won't raise revenues, they wont hit the wealthy, and they wont solve any problems. But those problems won't be solved until a coalition of conservatives and libertarians, absent the Republican establishment, win the White House.

In the wake of the 2012 election, Republican leaders and some "conservative" (sic) pundits are suggesting that it's imperative that Republicans in the House soften their position on tax hikes. The day after the election, House Speaker Boehner all but forfeited conservative opposition.

Soon after, Bill Kristol (a commentator who has lost his conservative credentials and shouldn't be confused with comedian Billy Crystal) attempted to excuse this cave by stating "It won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires."

Our political and opinion "leaders" are completely missing...
