Did the GOP Blink?

Maybe so:

GOP Offers Payroll Tax Cut

Is it possible that Democrats talking about the real issues is boring a hole in Republicans’ united front?

…the GOP plan appeared to be an indication that Republicans are smarting from a Democratic messaging campaign — headlined by the president — that has argued the rich are not paying their fair share into government coffers. Various public polls in recent months have shown a majority of Americans agree, and the president hammered home that theme again Wednesday during an appearance in Scranton, Pa.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins (Maine) went so far as to put this out:

“I do believe that multimillionaires and billionaires who are not running businesses could pay more of their income to help us pay more of the deficit,” Collins said Wednesday.

Always a centrist, Collins is likely to become a pariah in her own party soon.
