Entitlement reform should be the price of any tax increase
Charles Krauthammer says tax increases Obama wants are the only bargaining chip Republicans have and they should demand entitlement reform to get them. I think Democrats at this point would rather see us go off the cliff so they can blame Republicans for higher taxes on the middle class.
Republicans better start making the argument that what they are asking for in making Medicare and Social Security solvent for the middle class so they will be there when the next generation retires. They need to be seen as teh saviors of these entitlements rather than a threat. They have to transfer to the Democrats and their reckless spending as a threat to these programs.
