Kristol Urges Republicans to Break Tax Pledge

Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol urged the Republican Party to accept new ideas, "including the much-criticized suggestion by Democrats that taxes be allowed to go up on the wealthy," the Huffington Post reports.

Said Kristol: "It won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. It really won't, I don't think. I don't really understand why Republicans don't take Obama's offer."

He added: "Really? The Republican Party is going to fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of whom live in Hollywood and are hostile?"
