Did the Fiscal Cliff Deal Mark the Decline of Liberalism?

George Will recently commented on ABC:

I think people will look back on this deal as where liberalism passed an apogee and went into decline… Under this deal, 172 House Democrats voted to make the Bush rates permanent for all but 0.5 percent of American taxpayers. What that means is, is that they can no longer tax the middle class. And we have here an endangered species…

…you know that you cannot fund a state that liberals want, the entitlement state, without taxing the middle class at least. And now youve given up that — with the locking-in as permanent law the Bush tax rates, thats off the table.
