I'm not anti-Republican, but I've always felt that anyone who signed the 'Tax Pledge' was unfit for duty in government.  Anyone that would agree to raise revenues by closing loopholes but wouldn't consider raising the tax rate when both are doing the same thing (taxing people more) is simply playing a shell game with their constituents, putting their own re-election first and the country's economy a distant second.  

I'd rather see Republicans use this as an opportunity to do some smart cuts to spending that might otherwise be difficult to make.
