    ...that was the referendum on the tax issue.

    That the Republicans lost only 7 seats in the House doesn't negate that fact. It's called political capital, that the president can spend as we approach the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. Boehner arguing that we should adopt the plan of the losing candidate is a non-starter. In any case, it is certainly not an olive branch or conciliatory.
