Krugman urges President Obama to go over the “fiscal cliff” if it’s necessary.
Let’s Not Make a Deal
.....So President Obama has to make a decision, almost immediately, about how to deal with continuing Republican obstruction. How far should he go in accommodating the G.O.P.’s demands?
Debate (you call it obstructionism) is the crucible of democracy. Very important to prevent a rubber stamp dictatorship like the first two years of Obama. Bad things happen like $1.2T deficit with no budget for 4 years and more accumulated debt under Obama than under all prior Presidents since the founding of America. What Obama has done is create a fiscal disaster. Obama shows his incompetence for the job by resorting to partisan backstabbing instead of win-win negotiation.
