This is the Opposite of Political Fortitude

This headline says it all:
“WASHINGTON -- After months of arguing that millionaires should have to pay their fair share for the costs of the president’s job bill, Democrats are poised to drop a provision that would make them do so.”
NO: insist that it stay in and that the House go back and re-vote on the issue. And when they don’t, use their support for millionaire’s welfare as a giant sledgehammer against them in next year’s campaign, as loudly and as often as possible. Not only will that lead to electoral gains, in the long run it will re-establish the idea that the wealthy should pay their fair share of into the public treasury.
