Absolutely. The GOP should state clearly, "We cannot in good conscience vote for these policies, but the American people have spoken by re-electing Obama, so we will respect their choice by voting 'present' and allowing the Obama administration to try its plan, fully implemented."
"The Democrats are raising taxes so that the rich pay their fair share. We will allow them to define what the "fair share" will be. Having done that, we expect them NOT to come back in the future and expect the rich to pay more than their fair share because their fair share wasn't enough to solve our debt crisis."
