While President Barack Obama gave in to Republican demands over taxes, he hasn’t necessarily changed his stripes. Some in Washington still expect him to cling to his liberal agenda. Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn is one of them, The Hill reports
"President Obama's decision yesterday to join with Republicans in opposing the largest tax increase in American history was made not because he had a sudden change in political or economic philosophy," the senator wrote in a letter to supporters of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Still, Cornyn called the deal "genuinely a bipartisan proposal. I hope it's the start of a new trend."
Taxes and spending will play a major role in the 2012 elections, he says.
