If the entire US population decided not to pay income tax, is the IRS ready to go after all of us? Now that would get some attention. Lower deductions at work as low as possible and then refuse to pony up the balance when due. Now the taxes have been lowered.

There you go, start playing the game like the liberal Warren Buffett. Starve the beast.

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
