25. I will take cuts if

I am a hardcore liberal but I am also a realist. I am willing to take cuts, if, and only if, they just end Bush tax cuts for the rich. If they do that, I am ok with no tax cuts for me as well(middle-class).

What makes me angry is rich want their cuts but I am asked to sacrifice.

They could even give voucher as an option for Medicare if Bush tax cuts are history. We do not have to choose it? Again, absolutely no to deductions, closing loopholes, if Bush tax cuts stay.

By the way, liberals should not sit at home in 2014 like they did in 2010. If they had not, this cliff would never have happened. If you sit out, you are destroying the future. Sometimes, we need to learn to take small successes despite disappointment.

President's best chance at maneuvering is NOW, not in a year. So, this is the time to pressure, but please, do not sit out in 2014 if the deal is less than ideal. As long as it is not a monumental cave in like in 2010, we should be ok.
