Republicans should wait until January 3 to preserve (and lower) the Bush tax rates

Republicans should say no to Obama’s tax “compromise.”  Republicans have the stronger hand.  We won a decisive victory this November, and we will have a large conservative majority in the House of Representatives. 

The Democrats have asked for unreasonable compromises in the lame duck session, including extending unemployment benefits for an unprecedented 13 additional months (after extending them for a record 99 weeks!)  Enough is enough.  We do not want more spending.  Republicans did not win their election by promising to increase spending even further.  They won by promising to cut spending.  Don’t take the deal.  Walk away.  We are going to have a large majority this January 3rd.  Wait until then.  Then we’ll talk to Obama.
