OMFG Chris Hayes is straight up fear mongering for Big War on MSNBC tonight...

Chris is saying that there is no good name for the "fiscal cliff", and he went through a slew of names, all bad.

The one name he did not use "The Budget Control Act of 2011" - the ACTUAL NAME of the legislation that's about to be enacted.

That's right, it's not a cliff, it's not a monster, it's budget control.

The big issue, of course, are the cuts to the military profiteers, these are serious cuts to the bloated military budget that is 60-70% of our total budget, serious cuts that progressives have been trying to enact since Eisenhower's "Cross of Iron" speech.

So why is he fear mongering about the "cliff"? Could it be that Chris works for a media conglomerate that is owned by one of the biggest military contractors in America, and enacting budget cuts to the military is not in his bosses financial best interest...?

1. Let the 31st pass. Then make the GOP squirm on a middle class tax cut.

Take care of the rest from there.

The GOP can't even guarantee plan B so they are not going to give the President less.

3. I thought GE sold NBC Universal

 

To Comcast.

Or are you saying Comcast is providing cable to our troops worldwide at standard Pentagon mark up rates?
