Tax Revenue Debate Not Over

White House adviser David Plouffe told ABC News that despite Republican warnings that the tax debate is over, President Obama would not accept a budget deal without additional revenue.

Said Plouffe: "We are goiing to require some more revenues. John Boehner himself said he thought there was $800 billion in revenue from closing loopholes. We've dealt with the tax rate issue. Now it's about loopholes."

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had the same message on Meet the Press: "We're going to do a budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. And our Republican colleagues better get used to that fact."
