Let me rephrase that so it's not a blatant lie...

Republican proposal: tax hikes for lower and middle class + decimation of medicare + tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.

WH proposal: tax hikes for millionaires and billionaires + stimulus spending.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I got from the NPR report too. The GOP is proposing $800B of "new revenue", but they don't say how they're going to do it. "The tax committees will figure that out next year." Yeah, right. Sounds just like Romney's "I'll give you the details after you elect me president" bit.

Oh...and the "proposal" includes a reduction of the tax rate on the wealthy. Boehner and his cadre of clowns just don't get it...
