The White House press secretary, in his daily briefings to the press, should begin EACH DAY's briefing with a prepared statement:
"As of today there are only X days until the taxes on ALL Americans go up because the Republicans in Congress are holding tax cuts on 98% of Americans hostage to the Republicans' demand that taxes on millionaires and billionaires remain too low. President Obama campaigned on tax fairness - making the richest 2% of Americans pay their fair share of taxes. He won the election by Y.z million votes and by a larger percentage margin than President Bush won his 2004 reelection. The Republicans in Congress refuse to acknowledge that the voters have spoken - and the voters want the richest 2% to pay their fair share in taxes. It is time for the Republicans in Congress to stop holding 98% of Americans hostage to the billionaires who donated to the Republicans' campaigns. Time is running out and we have only X days to act."
Perhaps he could have a sign on an easel next to him with the message:
"X days left until taxes go up"
