It won't be the end of the world if we go over the fiscal cliff. Military spending will be cut.

Let the republicans eat that.

In fact we can start from scratch and undo all the damage done by deregulation and the repukes. They will be forced to compromise or become obsolete

1. The cuts will be equally deep on the non-military side

As long as they have one house of Congress we cannot rebuild things as we like. At least until 2016 we have to deal with them at some level.

It does make be miss the first 2 years of this administration when this was not the case.

3. We could have made more progress than we did

As it stands now, it will be a somewhat defensive battle...even though we clearly won the election
