Republicans are moving, time for the Democrats to do the same

Republican congressmen are beginning to break away from Grover Norquist's arm-twisting tactics to get lawmakers to sign a pledge to never raise tax rates.
       I applaud Sen Lindsay Graham and Rep. Peter King for moving away from Norquist's pledge.
       Now it is time for the Democratic Party to move away from its ideological pigheaded-ness. That means Democrats must be willing to radically reform entitlement programs (especially Medicare and Medicaid) and to dramatically cut spending.
       It's time for Republicans and Democrats to "man up" - we need a "pathway to YES" (David Broder's statement) and it's time for everyone on both sides of the aisle to sacrifice the ideological sacred cows.
