    why couldn't the Republicans agree to even this?
    why couldn't the dems agree to just spending cuts?

    sure, cut only spending on defense, subsidies to the oil & natural gas industry, farm subsidies, and other corporate welfare. sounds like a good plan.

    Yes, the middle class will hold politicians accountable for proposing a tax raise on them. You call it "buying votes," but it's just democracy in action.

    Debt Committee Said to Weigh Republican Plan on Tax Breaks - Bloomberg

    Democrats almost agreed to the Republican plan.. but they insisted on raising taxes instead of raising revenue... and the deal fell apart.

    That would be evading actually supplying quotes with links for context.

    yeah that is the GOP compromise

    the dems would have to cut all that social spending that buys votes of people like you, cut the EPA, cut handouts to unions, those big dem companies that got cushy government contracts, payouts to teachers, SEIU, AFSCME etc

    so they want to lower-taxes on the wealthy, while raising taxes on the middle-class?

    interesting plan. my question now is: who are the GOP working for?
