Response to yurbud (Original post)

4. well the problem is that republicans still control the house in the new congress.

yes, it's certainly viable to postpone the day of reckoning, whether through an agreement to extend some things a few months into 2013 or to just "fall off the fiscal cliff" -- because actually a lot of the fiscal cliff implications can be fixed retroactively, albeit at the expense of ongoing uncertainty.

and yes, there will be more democrats in congress at that point.

but so what? the house republicans would be just as obnoxiously obstinant with a 1-seat majority as they would with 100% of the house.
