1. In some ways in benefits both sides to just do everything when the new Congress convenes

All taxes go up, and they can be quickly pushed back down again; retroactively in the case of the 98%.

Then we are voting on tax cuts only, and Republicans would have to vote for the 98% part to keep their pledges to Grover. Nor would they be raising taxes on anybody. The top 2%'s taxes were scheduled to go up on January 1st and they went up; nobody will have voted to raise their taxes.

Also, the new Congress has a few more Democrats in both chambers, so there are more votes to work with on our side.

2. I still think the cliff...

is just a bluff. Will the markets really auto-asphyxiate over our debt or our taxes?

3. So many folks

 

are so clueless about this subject.


We are at an impasses in labor negotiations because of hard line company demands and I keep hearing that this would not have happened if Romney had won.

Stockholme syndrome. The voters "pissed off" the job creators and now we must pay the price. Now the fiscal cliff is adding fuel to their fire.

They honestly believe that none of this would have happened if Romney won.
