    This is the Republicans' strategy from the beginning: give the appearance of "moving" on revenue to make it look like they are being good faith negotiators. In doing so they are trying to put the onus on the Democrats to suggest spending cuts. They know that increasing revenue is much more popular than cutting spending, so they are trying to fool the public into thinking it's the Dems that proposing the cuts and the Repubs proposing the revenue increase. It was smart for the the White House to respond by establishing their own position rather than suggesting what the repubs position should be.
