A fiscal cliff deal at this stage may not be a good thing

I think a deal at this stage will not be a good thing for us. The repugs, as always, create crap to hinder the economy and the middle class. They should be made to face the public with this.

President Obama should put the original election time deal on the table, e.g. tax increases above $250k, no cuts to social security, medicare, Obamacare, and extension of the unemployment benefits. If the repugs accept, great maybe they've seen some reality, otherwise come back in January with this plan and retroactive provisions to give back to the middle class. The midterm elections should be fought on this.

1. I think the only deal at this point will be some stripped down agreement..

to delay the bad stuff and kick the can down the road on the tough decisions.
