If Dems won the election, why is ANYONE talking about a 3:1 ratio of spending cuts/tax increases??? [View all]

Or even a 2:1 ratio for that matter. As far as I can tell, NO Democrat ran on cutting any social program in such a way. Now it's conventional wisdom that this is the deal that must be made???

NO.

Any deal made to win Republican votes in the House and Senate must be biased in favor of tax increases. You know, because Democrats won the election. Anything less is a total sellout, imo.
