not just tax increases on "the rich," but also on the middle and working classes.

Republicans should make sure this is a moment they seize to educate the American people about what Democrats really believe: President Obama is willing to create a fiscal crisis in this country over the principle that -- when the government overspends -- it's better to increase taxes on struggling voters than simply to force the government to live within its means.
