They intend to lie that keeping the Bush cuts for lower wage earners is a GOP goal = GOP heroes
while bashing dems for protecting Medicare/Medicaid (the "takers" in their dictionary) = DEMS villans
The spin has become more obvious this past week as a few republicans (pretending to be moderate) have had the "courage" to step out and be "responsible" by acknowledging tax cuts for the 98% are necessary AND SO ARE MEDICARE CUTS.
Just listen to Bob Corker today. Or Lindsay Graham:

"It's pretty clear to me they've made a political calculation," the South Carolina senator said on CBS' "Face the Nation," calling the administration's initial proposal offered Thursday "a joke" when it comes to entitlement reform. Graham, like other Republicans, has said he's willing to accept new tax revenue, but only if it comes with significant changes to entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
They haven't had a change of heart. They just intend to shift the blame onto Obama if he refuses their deal and we go over the cliff.
