Hey Caveman I think if you read the "article" you will see that the Dems put their opening bid out and are waiting for the republes to do the same.

DemocRats put out an "opening bid" with no defined cuts. Just rhetoric. they refuse to say exactly what they want or will accept in cuts,and as it SAID IN THE ARTICLE,they want the Repubs to put their cuts forward so the DemocRATS can use it to beat them on the head.

You need to learn to read,Six.

Senate Democrats are blaming Republicans for the slow pace of the fiscal cliff negotiations, arguing that Republicans have failed to lay out the entitlement spending cuts they want to see as part of a deal … Senate Democrats say they have made their opening bid on the revenue side by pushing House Republicans to approve a Senate-passed bill to extend the Bush-era tax cuts for the middle class while raising tax rates on the wealthy. Now, Democrats want Republicans to offer up the spending cuts they want to see – a move the GOP doesn’t seem inclined to make right now

Point that part of the article you are referring to Six.

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?
