    Are cuts to the military and/or tax increases on the top 2% on the table at all?Sure doesn't sound like it.

    alex, I can somewhat agree with you, but the tax hike (or whatever you would like to call it) would not even equal to putting a wet bandaide on a gaping head wound.

    if the dems are willing to regulate and cut welfare, regulate their own spending, cut government pensions and pay to a reasonable size, cutting military waste, cut business taxes, then my extra 2-3k a year won't pay for 10 seconds of their daily budget.

    when you are so far in debt and are still budgeted to spend way more than you have coming in, there is no way else but cuts that will start to get you back on track. there is not enough money in this country to keep our current budget balanced.

    I was totally unaware Dems were blocking military cuts.As for cutting taxes, how does less income help? Oh, right, owners will hire despite there being no business to justify it because it's the gentlmanly thing to do.

    that's funny, they now have the burden of health care as a tax, but i guess that is the
    gentlmanly thing to do
    cutting business tax enough may bring some of our business' back to the united states, why do you think everyone is moving their HQ and manufacturing overseas? cheap labor is nice, but the tax cisco saves by moving the HQ to ireland (i think it was) is crazy, instead of keeping some of it, we lost it all.

    Okay, but that doesn't answer why military cuts and taxes on the wealthy being off the table completely make the Republicans good compromisers.

    never said the republicans were good, well not lately. i think non payroll military cuts, raise taxes on 250k and over, and the rest of what i mentioned would e a decent start.

    And yet it's only the Democrats you're mad at for not dealing. Why not hold Republicans accountable the same?

The GOP in the house has/is refusing to let any bill from the Senate be openly debated on the floor...Cantor and Boehner have earned that title! That is all they have done for 2 years. trying to paint it any other way is just BS! Plain and simple
    And Harry Reid won't let Reps introduce or amend legislation in the Senate. Compromise works both ways. Both sides are failing.

    That is NOT unreasonable.

    And Obama SHOULD NOT BACK DOWN!

    Fight this all the way.....and if no deal is reached.....FINE....the tax cuts expire for everyone, that's fine by me too!
    Letting the Bush tax cuts expire is a tax hike. I am not arguing the reasonableness of it. But it is a tax hike.
