Republicans need to just keep asking for the BILL from the President and Dems in the Senate and not put any more out there to be criticized. When a bill is finally out there then say "In the spirit of compromise we will support making all the Bush tax cuts permanent except for the top 2%, which is what the President has said repeatedly he wants, IF the Dems will cut every program/deparment/agency/line item that the GAO has reported in the last two years has had waste and fraud by those amounts. If they have money to waste, they have too much. They all can claim they cut waste. It will raise $80 billion in revenue and cut $300+billion in spending and this will be the most change in years.
