It is simple math. If limiting deductions will give the democrats the "holy" revenue they seek then why do they not want it? Is it because their main goal is to try to force Republicans to go over the cliff, where they will be blamed or hurt them by trying to make them violate beliefs and pledges so they can gain seats in the mid-term?
I don't trust Obama the media or Congress at this point. Just seems like if the Republicans are giving the President and Democrats the "Revenue" they seek it would not be stinking like it is now.
