GOP should embrace offer of spending cuts

After this last election, it has become abundantly clear that the “takers” now outnumber and outvote the rest of us. One might ask what I mean by the word “taker”; a taker is an individual who over some period has received more from the federal government than he has paid or can ever hope to pay in taxes.

The rest of us are left with little ammunition for this battle. My suggestion to the Republican Party: take one step back in order to take two steps forward. During this last election cycle, nearly every Democrat running for federal office claimed their opponents (the GOP) would be unwilling to accept $10 in spending cuts for every $1 raised in tax revenue. Rather than fight tooth and nail and appear to be obstructionists, embrace their offer.

Options are very limited at this point. Does anyone know the number of a Realtor in Ohio?
