The Republicans have been boxed into a corner. If they vote for tax increases the will have gone against their promises to the folks that voted them into office. If they refuse to allow tax increases they will be labeled as obstructionists by the dems and MSM. I know it's going to hurt for a while but I say give Barack Hussein Obama everything he wants and sit back and watch him go down in flames. You can't trust Liberals to follow through on any promises to cut spending in exchange for tax increases, just ask Ronald Reagan.
