    Bill Kristol, the neocon of neocons, said today on Fixed News that raising taxes on millionaires would not "kill the country."

    He went on, "Really? The Republican Party is going to fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of whom live in Hollywood and are hostile?" … 13671.html

    I think momentum is building for Republicans to agree to closing loopholes WITHOUT lowering rates, thereby voting for a net tax increase.  I think the payroll tax needs to go too, since it is used to fund SS.

    What say you?

      Boehner has been sounding a bit conciliatory. Hopeful sign.

        My only concern is that Medicare, Medicaid, and SS are going to be on the chopping block.
