    I say that we, the Dems, block everything. The tax cuts expire, and the Repubs do not have enough votes to do anything in the Senate.

    You sick Repubs blocked the money for the responders to 9-11 to demostrate that you will stop at nothing to aid the very wealthy. You played the game of 'NO' for the last two years, if the Dems have any sense, they will hand it right back to you now.

    Extend none of the tax cuts

    don't extend unemployment bennies

    because unlike the rest of you posers I care about the deficit and I mean it.

    Increase taxes, cut spending as the deficit commission recommends.

    Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

    It is the ONLY conservative option.

    Sounds like a capital idea. They've worked out so well so far and all.

    The real problem with the economy isn't high unemployment or a record deficit, it's that the top 2% who control over 50% of the entire nation's financial wealth still don't have enough.

    Show us what you wish to cut first THEN extend the tax cuts once you've agreed to the spending cuts.

    If you can't cut spending, don't cut taxes. Financial markets do not operate in a vacuum.

    And then make plans for a flat or front the FAIR tax. Get rid of the IRS and the punitive codes the Government uses for class warfare.

    Go with the compromise we got and let the new Congress repeal the pork and/or cut spending to pay for a conversion of long term unemployment insurance to welfare.
