Finally the GOP politicians are learning to hammer home the message that Obama received his taxes increases in the fiscal cliff deal, $41 worth for every $1 in cuts and now the sequestration deal is about spending cuts, not taxes.
Via The Hill:
Deputy Majority Whip Tom Cole (R-Okla.) said Sunday that House Republicans would “absolutely” not accept new revenues as part of a deal to avoid the $85 billion in automatic cuts to the federal budget set to take effect in three weeks.
“Absolutely not,” Cole said on ABC News's "This Week." “The president accepted no spending cuts back in the ‘fiscal cliff’ deal 45 days ago, so you get no spending cuts back then, then you’re going to get no revenue now.”
