I don't think the Democrats should be gloating or feeling like they have the upper hand. The truth is that people want solutions and those solutions are only going to happen if both parties compromise. Get the country going inte right direction and they can resume their petty party differences once they have accomplished that mission.

If I was him and the republicans wouldn’t extend the tax cuts for those making under 250K
See you bought the whole lie. Where have the Republicans ever said they would let the rich keep tax cuts but they would raise taxes on the middle class? That was just the Democrat Propaganda machine saying all that stuff and it's a lie.
President Obama goes on the offensive, prepares to slam Republicans

So Obama would blame republicans (big surprise) and hold hostage the American people, just so he can raise taxes.
How utterly small. How utterly low.
As I said on Tuesday night, the American people voted for action, not politics as usual. You elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. And in that spirit, I’ve invited leaders of both parties to the White House next week, so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together. And I also intend to bring in business and labor and civic leaders from all across the country here to Washington to get their ideas and input as well.
The White House says Obama will meet with labor representatives as well as other progressive groups Tuesday. He'll hold separate meetings with the business community Wednesday.
Obama and bipartisan congressional leaders will hold their first fiscal cliff meeting Friday.
In fact, it's horrible that they're fighting to avoid paying their fair share when the middle class is hurting-

Once again it's ridiculous to claim Obama hasn't tried to work with the Republicans. I have to say I'm actually surprised he's standing up to them now. Let's hope this is just a prelude to moving away from the childish behavior we saw from both parties first term.
Were you around durring tha passing of Obama Care? The Dems ran all over the republicans. Thats they way they are. Its burns them to no end that they have the house to deal with.

That is really stupid to try to connect dots from a idea at a think tank, where the research was "What may an out of control govt do", to Romney's STATE health care plan to the bastard that 0bamacare has become.
That is like saying because Ford built a car, that he was for people to drive them while drunk.

But what about the 1993 bill which was supported by John McCain, Orrin Hatch, Charles Grassley, Robert Bennet, and Chris Bond and other senate republicans?
Bill Frist supported the individual mandate before Obama supported it.
