    G.O.P.ís No-Tax Stance Is Outside Political Mainstream

    i really do believe the gop is hanging themselsves with their "no-can-do" attitude. even republicans want compromise.

    If we do take the Republicansí no-new-taxes position literally, it isnít surprising that the negotiations have broken down. Consider that, according to the Gallup poll, Republican voters want the deal to consist of 26 percent tax increases, and Democratic voters 46 percent ó a gap of 20 percentage points. If Republicans in the House insist upon zero tax increases, there is a larger ideological gap between House Republicans and Republican voters than there is between Republican voters and Democratic ones.
