The Dems think they have the ace in the hole so they don't need to make concessions. It's too easy to turn the tables. GOP comes out and says okay to tax increases on the top 2% so long as entitlement reforms get done. How in the world can the Democrats NOT think entitlement reform is needed??? I don't get it.

What's not to get? It's a political game of chicken. They figure the Republicans aren't going to do what you suggest. And it's probably a good bet. I don't see the GOP putting tax increases on the table anytime soon. Do you?
