    • FISCAL CLIFF: REPUBLICANS UNVEIL COUNTEROFFER - Fans of healthy old people will be displeased. WSJ: "The tax proposal, part of a new, broader Republican plan to resolve the fiscal-cliff standoff, is based on a 2011 effort by Erskine Bowles to come up with a deficit-cutting deal. It would cut about $4.6 trillion from the deficit over 10 years, including $600 billion in savings in Medicare and other health programs--up from $350 billion the president proposed--and change the way cost-of-living increases are calculated in Social Security and other inflation-adjusted programs... The White House rejected the GOP offer, saying it 'does not meet the test of balance' and leaves the middle class with the bill for deficit reduction." [WSJ]

      • DEFENSE EXECS WANT HIGHER TAXES, DEFENSE CUTS - When your budget proposal is less aggressive than one backed by the military-industrial complex, time to rethink. AOL Defense: "Top executives from four major defense and aerospace firms sent a message to Congress and the Obama administration today: the nation expects its elected leaders to lead and the well-paid executives are willing to accept higher personal and corporate taxes on the path to find a solution to the nation's fiscal woes. On top of that, they conceded that the Pentagon budget must be cut even more deeply than the $487 billion already targeted over the next decade to seal an increasingly elusive deal to stop the automatic spending cuts known as sequestration."
