    support the notion that the wealthy pay a higher share of taxes.

    In the end, that is the mandate that counts.  

    Introduce the appropriate legislation in the House to implement President Obama's plan and when the Republicans block it, go around them to the American people. Use the bully pulpit. Get the people to burn up the wires calling and emailing their representatives. If the legislation still doesn't pass, let all the Bush tax cuts expire and introduce new legislation to cut taxes on income below $250K, retroactive to 1 January.  It would be suicide for them to oppose that legislation.

    The Republicans have to be looking at 2014 with great trepidation given the results this past week, and I think the people have had their fill of the obstructionism.
