4. Grandstanding

This is all just political theatre and grandstanding intended to shift responsibility for going over the "cliff" onto Obama. But the measures proposed here really don't do that. In fact these Republican proposals will add to the deficit while increasing taxes on many in the middle-class.

Besides, no bill should be voted on without the CBO scoring it ahead of time. This alone shows this to not be a serious proposal but grandstanding instead. What the Republicans don't seem to realize is that the American people are still focused and will see right through this and be even more disgusted with Republican antics.
