You wish the Norquist pledge was a red herring. Conservatives hold that about their pledge to thus country.<quoted text>
Speaker Boehner has already made a move to increase taxes provided that Obama is willing to move on spending.
Obama refuses to compromise in any way.
So we go over the fiscal cliff.
(The Norquist pledge is just a red herring, not worthy of discussion.)
Don't you find the conservstives approach to this as rather telling?
The Democrats want those who are doing well in the economy to give up their Bush tax cut, to help raise revenues.
The Conservatives want to protect the wealthy while demanding old people get less from Medicare to save money.
