Mitch McConnell Finally Shows His Hand

The following post and video by Stan Greenberg are cross-posted from the Carville-Greenberg Memo:

Now that Minority Leader McConnell has admitted what Republicans want in order to avoid the "fiscal cliff," James and I propose a deal: Democrats will no longer talk about "revenue enhancements" and will instead call them tax increases. In exchange, Republicans can no longer talk about "entitlement reforms" but must admit that they want to cut Medicare and Social Security. If we all start speaking honestly, the 2012 elections sent a very clear message about which side the American people prefer.
