Are Republicans willing to bite the proverbial bullet on the so-called "fiscal cliff"? If the opinion of neoconservative staple William Kristol is any guide, then yes, just maybe.
Kristol told "Fox News Sunday" that the GOP shouldn't "fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires," reports Raw Story
. He hoped to coax the more stubborn (or principled, if you like) Republican members of the House to concede to the Obama administration's plan to raise taxes on households with an annual income of 250k and up to help reduce the federal deficit.
"The leadership in the Republican Party and the leadership in the conservative movement has to pull back, let people float new ideas," said Kristol. "It won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires." Besides, he points outs, many of these millionaires are Democrat-voting, Hollywood-hills-living liberals anyway
