You seem to forget the house republicans also ran and won on cutting spending.


This right here. This is the thing.

The electorate was clear on what it wanted; Higher taxes on affluent and above, but also substantive spending cuts to address the debt.

There is no reason that both can't happen so if the President and the House screw this up, I just give up.
