House GOPer: Many Republicans Don't Live In 'Political Reality'

Rigell said that Republicans need to accept a raise in taxes during budget talks.

"Revenues have to come up a bit because it's a conservative principle that one generation pays for the goods or services that it benefits from," he told The Hill.

While Rigell is willing to raise taxes, he is not optimistic about Congress' ability to draft a comprehensive budget.

“We can pass a bill with 233 Republicans, thump ourselves on the chest ... but nothing gets done,” he said. “Going on without a solution in this Congress is not an option ... time is working against us.”

time has been working awhile and still nothing has been getting done. Both sides need to give. Cuts on entitlements and raise taxes but Norquest has too many minions to raise taxes though.

He sounds like a realist.   Someone who values doing what is achievable, above pretty words and achieving nothing.

I'm guessing he'll be denounced as a RINO.
