why would the democrats make a deal. if we go off the fiscal cliff they get everything they want,27% cuts in medicare, huge military cuts, and enormous amounts of revenue from the wealthy and middle class. and on top of that they can blame the republicans. that is why they are not negotiating in good faith. they all ready have the deal they want. its a done deal. this is exactly what the democrats want, so there will be no deal and everyone knows it. if the president agrees to cuts in entitlements the democrats would share some of the blame, so that not going to happen, just get your cuts in medicare ,get revenue from taxing everyone more, and cut the military and blame it on the republicans because they did want to raise taxes on the rich. prepare your portfolio
Re: "why would the democrats make a deal. if we go off the fiscal cliff they get everything they want...."
Well, bige, I wouldn't exactly say they get everything they want but it does look like the Republicans, even when they were negotiating from a much greater position of strength, made a pretty stupid deal, doesn't it? How did that happen?
watch the market the next couple of weeks. Obama hit the jackpot, the new Obamacare tax that starts in Jan, then the bush tax cuts expire, man he going to be like a kid in a candy store. if you have a job take are hard look at your take home pay after the !st. this is really on going to affect the middle class the rich are selling and leaving the market.
With a 27% cut in medicare, there are going to be alot of people die for lack of care,, docs in private practice in no way can take this kind of cut and stay in business,, seniors are going to suffer the most,,shameful,,
