    Huge spending cuts in return for eliminating tax breaks for the wealthy. Now your turn, what is the GOP willing to give up for huge spending cuts?

    The GOP says "no" to any tax-increases OR closing tax-loopholes.

    who exactly, isn't willing to compromise?
    I added in context in bold.

    Let's agree to spending cuts immediately with a promise of tax increases down the road, say never! Good plan?

    There are no tax increases proposed that I have seen. Please provide a source to back up your personal opinion. Thanks!

    I did. He is lying. The one term Marxist president Obama sets a 4 trillion dollar spending reduction as a goal over the next 12 years.
    He cannot be trusted. He must be defeated instead.

    Walk away Republicans. Just walk away and let the Marxist self-destruct.

    The "Gang of Six" proposal isn't going anywhere. For the most part, the only Republicans who are interested in compromise are in the Senate (as well as Speaker Boehner). If this proposal calls for spending cuts and tax increases, as it's expected to, then it's no different than any other proposal in the past few months which has been roundly rejected by House Republicans. There is no way that the House Republicans will compromise one iota on taxes; they'd rather punt and pass a relatively clean debt ceiling increase, than compromise on anything in order to drastically reduce the size of government. And that's exactly what I expect will happen: McConnell's "back-up" plan will be the solution.

    When the Republicans walk away the spending levels will be cut roughly in half.

    Really? How? The one term Marxist president won't be able to borrow more money. He will have to somehow survive on what already comes into the Treasury.

    I'm pretty sure Marxism doesn't mean what you want it to mean.

    Can someone get this guy a dictionary, and the brainpower nessecary to apply terms and definitions effectively?

    Walk away from what? The nations debt? The GOP will not throw the country into a depression and upset the entire financial system of the world simply over an ideological cause. If they do, we are looking at a whole lot of years of Democratically controlled government in our future.
