DON'T negotiate. If you do, you will be blamed for the oncoming disasters. Let the Dems have what they want, big taxes on the rich, barrycare, gut defense, the whole nine yards. Make it clear you oppose these actions because they will lead to ruin, but explain the people have spoken and you are powerless to halt the leftwing big government juggernaut. Only conservative policies can bail us out of the oncoming misery. If you are portrayed either as obstructionist, or bipartisan cooperator, you will be blamed, and conservative policy kicked down the road again.
