  •  I disagree (4+ / 0-)
    The “plan,” presented to Republican leaders yesterday, consists of $1.6 trillion in tax hikes over 10 years and unspecified spending cuts that “could total” $400 billion over the same period. So estimating liberally, the package consists of at least $4 of tax increases to $1 of spending cuts
    Given the fact that there are no specific cuts other than a definite maybe, I'd say it looks more like $4 of tax increases to zero spending cuts.  I find hard to believe, after securing a tax increase deal, Obama would go for spending cuts.
