    Obama's idea of 'compromise'​

    What was McConnell thinking?

    The fiscal cliff deal passed by the Senate contains $1 in spending cuts for every $41 in tax hikes.

    Brietbart:

    According to the Congressional Budget Office, the last-minute fiscal cliff deal reached by congressional leaders and President Barack Obama cuts only $15 billion in spending while increasing tax revenues by $620 billion-a 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts.
    When Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush increased taxes in return for spending cuts-cuts that never ultimately came-they did so at ratios of 1:3 and 1:2.
