you arent' very smart. Obama and the dems might very well let the gop take the nation over the so called cliff, and then Obama will offer a taxcut for the 99% , those making less than an agi of $250 K. will the gop reject a tax cut?
get it?... the dems will get what they want.... and of couse the pubs will want to restore defense so they will have to play ball with 'entitlements'........ get the picture?
all along Obama has been offering several dollars of spending cuts for a dollar of tax hike, but the bratty and foolish gop has held the nation hostage for tax cuts for the rich....... well now, no matter what, the bush tax cuts for the rich are OVER...and the dems don't have to do anything. Maybe finally the gop will stop being such total ajoles.
I go completely the other way. Obama won the election and it's Christmas: give Obama a blank check to write ANYTHING he wants, with the provision that 100% of the Bush Tax Cuts will go away foer 100% of everybody. Likewise the so-called "Payroll Tax Cut" will go away for everybody.
Then insist the new plan be called The Obama Obsessive & Excessive Tax & Spend Plan."
Then sit back and watch the lemmings charge over the cliff!
