It has to with the automatic trigger, January 1st 2013 (if the world happens to spin on after 12-12-12 and the Mayans mis-calculated.)
Keep in mind this was going to happen regardless of a Romney win or loss. Its up to congress now. Elections have consequences Lets see who blinks first.
Ohh look the GOP has already. http://www.latimes.com/news/polit...0933.st
What will end up happeneing, IMO a temp band aide solution will agreed upon. Kicking the can down the road to make this the center piece of the 2014 elections, which strategies are already being planned. The GOP has alot more to lose having aligned themselves with the Tea Party and the like, Michelle Bachman who barely won reelection or nut Allen West who was kicked put last night.
Republicans can't ignore the voters. The President is in a very strong position to dictate terms to Boehner now.
