I think it's pretty clear there are enough Republicans willing to increase taxes if there are spending cuts with it...but not enough to pass the House.

How many Democrats are willing to vote for spending cuts to go with the tax hikes? I figure it will take 1 Democrat for every 1.5 Republican lost. Can Obama/Pelosi deliver enough Democrats?

McConnell has already said that if it passes the House, it will pass the Senate. He'll make sure there are enough votes.

If it's just tax hikes, you won't get enough Republicans...most who are saying they are open to hikes are open to balance between the two.
