When President Obama also offers $650 billion in entitlement cuts over 10 years -- cuts that would hurt his party's constituents and anger his strongest supporters, that is a real compromise. When the White House offers hundreds of billions less in new revenue than any of the three (rather center-right) bipartisan budget proposals on the table -- indeed, offers almost $4 in spending cuts for every $1 in new revenue -- that is a real compromise.

    It's not the first time real compromised came before them, but they simply didn't act.
    If I remember correctly, the Democrats have helped considerably to put the kibosh on Obama's proposed budgets.

    But, okay, I accept that you don't have any concrete information to support your belief that some number of Republicans want to see our country's government fail.

    Moving on...

    Besides concrete steps proposed that can be seen on the various GOP websites? Nowhere, I guess.

    The same as the demorats, so far. If you have ZERO chance of getting a bill passed then why even write one? Much the same as neither party will dare propose any REAL (specific) spending cuts, yet both TALK of them constantly, but only in terms of LATER, right after the economy (strangled by massive gov't debt and the impending taxation/labor costs increases) magically begins to grow. We now "pay for" things by borrowing and spending NOW and promising to cut 10th of that amount (from somewhere never specified) over the next ten years. Yes they can!

    Wrong, 51 Democrats put in writing that they favor the Public Option for health care when the GOP blocked it in the Senate.
