As I understand it, Democrats have agreed to entitlement reforms if Republicans will agree to tax increases, a course of action most citizens recognize as necessary to achieve deficit reduction and spur the economy. Yet Republicans won't budge, are apparently stuck either in their ideology or in pledges to their big money supporters, or both. I'm an independent, view the Democrats as a party that can't seem to get out of its own way, yet have no use for Republicans. They seem to have but two goals: personal greed and destroying the country.
