Yes Carol but the GOP is rejecting tax increases on the wealthiest advocating cuts only.Latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll:
65 percent say congressional leaders should make compromises to deal with the budget deficit even if that means Democrats would need to accept targeted spending cuts to Social Security and Medicare and that Republicans would need to accept targeted increases in tax rates.
That includes 68 percent of Democrats, 66 percent of Republicans and 56 percent of political independents who support this position.
All these people do know that means their taxes will go up too? Right?
And the cuts in SS and Medicare will affect present-day seniors (unlike Romney's plan which wouldn't have taken effect for another 15 years)?
Under the Democratic proposals middleclass taxes will stay the same.
