    Obama actually cares that the middle class will be hurt by a tax increase on January 1st.  Boeher does not.  "Their people" get a tax increase either way.

    That is, if taxes go up on January 1st and people blame Obama, that's a 100% Republican win that plays right into their campaign strategies.

    If taxes go up on January 1st and people blame Republicans... then Democrats still failed to protect the middle class from a tax increase and the people who need it from spending cuts.

      If Repubs vote against a tax cut for 98% of Americans the public will blame them for it, not Dems, as long as Dems repeat this over and over on television.

      Dems can't protect them from a Repub House majority and enough people know that.  There would be enormous pressure on the House to pass the tax cut for income under $250k.

    •  To bad that Obama and Reid (0+ / 0-)

      allowed themselves to be painted into that corner.
