  •  My favorite part is the quote from Rep. Kingston (5+ / 0-)
    Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston said. “We also debate the belief that we need more revenue. However, [if you ask me], if you had a dollar in revenue for eight dollars in spending, … I think that would be a deal we should really look at.
    I hate to break it to you, dude, but Obama is not offering you an 8-to-1 cuts/revenues split. You probably could have got that deal in 2010, but your caucus rejected it. All of your party's presidential candidates went on record opposing even a 10-to-1 deal.

    And guess what? that deal is now off the table. You'll be lucky to get a 2-to-1 agreement.

    •  Should go the other way. (1+ / 0-)

      I want a 1 to 2 arrangement; $1 in cuts for $2 in taxes.
