Fiscal cliff insanity: Progressive says White House already conceded too much, GOP says proposal too far left

GOP dismisses White House proposal

From the piece:

This could also, however, be just the opening salvo in what will be long, intensive negotiations. It signals that the White House is not about to start negotiations with major concessions after winning reelection, something the president has previously been criticized for from the left.

White House has already given up too much

From the piece:

Meanwhile, the White House has started the bidding with substantial concessions on tax increases and spending cuts. Haven’t we been here before?

Bush in 2004.

Obama makes fresh demands
