Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I hope Obama won't give in this time. He should call the GOP's bluff. If

necessary the Dems. should submit a bill in January allowing a tax cut only for those
earning less than $250,000/year. If the GOP should decide to defeat that bill, they
will surely lose the elections in 2014, and allow the Dems. to control both houses of
Congress. This would be a sort of suicide for the GOP party. Either way, more power
to the Dems.

Obama has them over a barrel. Will he stick to his guns?

1. How do the Dems get a vote in the House?

3. After the Senate has voted, the House will get to vote. If Obama sticks to his guns (tax

increase only for those making more than $250,000 per year), it would
very likely pass even in the House. If the GOP congressmen should vote
down the bill, many of them will be losing their jobs in 2014, because
Republicans will be quitting the GOP in droves. Most of themi are also
middle-class and will be going through drastic financial hardship, just like
the anybody else. I think for this reason many GOP congressmen will
accept Obama's terms.

Even if they didn't, the Dems. can re-introduce a new bill in January asking
for a tax increase only for those making more than$250,000 per year.

2. Talks in Senate now but don't let that stop the Obama give in again meme.

This involves more than the President...keep calling your Sen & Congress critters if not doing so already.
