There is a simple solution: Flip the situation. Pass a bill making ALL the Bush tax rates permanent, but add a 4 year rate hike on the rich that raises the rates to Clinton era rates. Then in 4 years, all republicans have to do is stonewall to get low taxes for everyone instead of being derided as "holding the middle class hostage" for the sake of the rich. Also the bill needs some pretty stiff entitlement reform because tax hikes aren't going to put a dent in our deficit.
