I'm sorry, but what is it that Obama wants? He hasn't even detailed a tax plan and he's proposed nothing for spending. There's also no Senate budget and Obama's didn't even receive one Democrat vote in support. So what are the Republicans supposed to surrender to? Quit spinning your wheels. Just let the President and Senate respond to the Republican bills from last summer. Don't do or say anything. Let's see what the Democrats propose and it can be negotiated out in conference committee and put up for an up or down vote. Then we can negotiate, but saying anything until then is just prepping your own noose.
