    its counterintuitive, I know.  But the GOP has kind of put themselves out there saying they support this.  And they've said that taxes for billionaires is their biggest priority.  So if the GOP gets its biggest priority, we should get some of ours too: EFCA, Climate Change, Immigration- take your pick.  I'm just saying, lets have that conversation- lets try to find out what's on the table- we only need half a dozen GOP senators to sign on- so what would they be willing to agree to protect their previous tax cuts for billionaires- Snowe is up for reelection, as is Brown- they have a huge incentive to be the hero here.  Voinovich is retiring.  I'm saying lets get creative and not be so knee-jerk in our objection.

      Read my post. We are progressives. Democrats. Not blue dogs. Not republicans. not Obamaites. You think progressives are going to fight to achieve something that is a Direct assault on their principles..

      Voters will choose a person who fights a losing battle for his principles over one who fights winning battles against them every time.
