Democrats Dig In Their Heels On Entitlement Cuts

That's the kind of headline I love to see right now.  Democrats hold all the cards in the fiscal cliff negotiations.  The people voted for a Democratic White House, Democratic House, and Democratic Senate.  The opinion polls show the public - even Republican voters - supports the Democrats' plan.  There's no reason Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security should be cut to protect the tax rates for the rich.

Republicans lost.  They don't get to call the shots.

If anything, at least the Republicans get a little taste of their own medicine.  All they've done is say no, no, no to everything, now the tables are turned and it's the Democrats' turn to say no.
