HuffPost editor Roy Sekoff appeared on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" Monday night to discuss the White House compromise on the expiring Bush-era tax cuts.

"The Republicans got everything they wanted. You can get the dictionary and show it to me, but this is not how I look at 'compromise,'" Sekoff told host Ed Schultz. "I'm not saying it's capitulation, but it's right next to it."

The so-called compromise suggests there isn't anything Democrats won't concede to Republicans, Sekoff added.

"You've got to stand where you live. There's got to be some core value," he said. "Over the last two months, the president over 50 times has said, 'We can't afford this, we can't give these tax cuts to the millionaires and billionaires, that's the line in the sand' -- and it just got erased."
