Lindsey Graham to Republicans: ‘Be quiet’


#1

**Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Monday that it’s time for Republicans “to be quiet for a while” and wait to see if Democrats are willing to negotiate reducing entitlements in the fiscal cliff negotiations. **

Here’s what I don’t hear: I don’t hear any Democrat of note saying, ‘Here’s what I would do on the entitlement side,’” Graham said on Fox News. “So if I were Republicans, I would be quiet for a while and see what the Democrats put on the table for entitlement reform.”[/FONT]

In other words be quiet and let the leaders of the GOP help Obama increase taxes. Please do not speak out. Boehner is already making noises of doing so and other top republicans are saying that increasing taxes is not so bad.

Last night, he told Greta van Susteren on Fox News that House Republicans should pass a bill with their specific plan to cut spending and fix the tax code to address the fiscal-cliff issues, and dare the Senate to take it up. If Democrats refuse, then Paul wants the House to hold a vote on the Democratic plan, with Republicans voting “present” to allow Democrats to pass the bill. That way, the economic damage from tax hikes will be totally owned by Democrats, and Republicans will have kept their hands clean:"
