  •  Cole has a good point. For real. (0+ / 0-)

    Someone at WaPo (or TPM, can't remember) wrote about this last week -- that they thought that the GOP giving in on this part was a terrific GOP strategy.

    And, he's right.  Giving up on tax cuts for those over $250K doesn't go anywhere near enough to close the deficit as much as many want . . . and now the GOP can say: we're compromising on taxes big time, you have to compromise on entitlements big time.

    Cole is absolutely right - this takes away the biggest leverage the Dems have.

    Of course, that's provided his bosses (Boehner & McConnell) can handle it.
