The voters might have told the Republicans that they would have to compromise on their position on taxes, but the Washington Post told them that they don't. The paper used a news article to imply that congressional Republicans are showing flexibility when they are just repeating the same position they have been putting forward for years. The article told readers:

"chastened Republican leaders have lined up behind Boehner to offer a compromise on taxes, until now a major stumbling block."

Actually the Republicans are not offering a compromise, they are offering the same position that they offered before and that Governor Romney put forward in his presidential campaign. They are proposing to eliminate some loopholes in exchange for a reduction in tax rates. If the Washington Post is successful in convincing the public that this longstanding Republican position is a compromise, then there will be no need for them to offer a real compromise.
