1. All we have to do to achieve this is to do nothing and let the Bush tax cuts expire,

then propose a tax cut for people under $250,000 the very next day. That's too easy. The Democrats hold all the cards. If Boehner wants to do anything he needs to come up with a 2/3 super-majority to override a veto. There is no need to compromise with the repukes. They have no power and no leverage unless they can override a veto with 2/3.

The responsibility for this budget is almost totally with the Democratic Party. I would rather focus my phone calls toward the Democrats, especially Pres. Obama, telling him not to sign any cuts to the safety-net programs. The real threat right now, in my opinion, is that Dems and repukes will reach a compromise where Dems agree to cut vital social protections in exchange for repukes letting taxes go up a little for the wealthy. That would be a horrible deal for working families. We don't need to make that deal because Dems hold most of the leverage.
