He's got it right where he wants it. Fall off the cliff, raise taxes that's what he wants and then blame the Republicans. He is one slick politician. And if the American people start to fuss then he'll step in to save the day.What a guy. I see he gave all his Washington buddies a raise today. Was that a nice thing to do or what.
Both sides have put forth their own proposals and both sides have said that the other is ridiculous. The only difference between the two is that one won a presidential election on thier ideals.
If we go off the cliff then we start down a path of extreme austerity (+1 conservatives) taxes go way up (+1 liberals) and we head into another recession (+1 bankruptcy attorneys). I don't see why anyone would benefit from this.
You people who blame Obama for this cliff are whacked. It's the tax cuts bush put into effect they are going to repeal. I'm not saying Obama isn't to blame for his huge spending but you all need to blame all those involved. And I think we should fall off the cliff maybe it will tick off enough people so we can get together and get things changed
Congress owns this not president Obama. The tea bags have caused a stalemate and they need to be voted out in 2014 if we are going to ever have a productive government again. The tea bags and neocons are destroying the republican party.
I'm terrified. I was at a noodle restaurant the other night that couldn't afford cable, so the only clear channel was Fox News. Dear pasta, I almost pooped my pants. I got nightmares the night after watching the segment on that monstrous obama fiscal cliff. I'm terrified, please save me oh mighty bus driver.
