I don't see a scenario where someone doesn't get a tax increase. Therefore, the republicans should get very very creative. Pass a tax increase on the "wealthy" BUT in the same bill, include provisions to cut the EPA, eliminate funding to planned parenthood, and de-fund Obamacare. Heck cut a couple other democrat programs in the same bill. THEN dare the Senate to pass it and Obama to sign it. The republicans give a valuable concession and it's back in Obama's court.
