22. I'll read a history book if you read a civics book. The "Cliff" is a framework passed by Congress,

and signed into law by the President. It wasn't handed to us by Gort the alien--it was passed in the usual way.

To say that the President was limited by political reality isn't saying anything at all, since that is always true. So what exactly are you disagreeing with? Not a damn thing, except how to spin this.
