I like the sentiment, but the House controls the purse strings, no? I wouldn't budge on the taxes. Keep the tax rates for everyone, unless Obama budges on tax reform and/or entitlement. Let the stupid fiscal cliff come and go, then negotiate tax reduction for all. Republicans have to show that Obama is unwilling to negotiate, and is prepared to raise taxes on everyone simply because he wants an ineffective, punitive tax an a handful of rich people and small businesses. If he won't agree to real entitlement or tax reform, go over the cliff. But you have to pin it on him. What is Obama's plan? Every Republican should just repeat that over and over. Answer no questions, offer nothing. Ask: What is Obama's plan?
