1. Maybe they should call it "balanced budget day".

We'll all pay a little more in tax and we'll balance the budget by 2015.

I'm concerned about the debt and the deficit and I think it's time to solve the problem by letting the Bush tax cuts expire. We'll all pay a little more and suffer a short recession and then start over with a balanced budget. I like that idea.

Unfortunately the Republicans have painted the "fiscal cliff" like some black and white Ingmar Bergman apocalypse. Balancing the budget is not an existential crisis to the American way. It's only paying another 3-5% in tax. That's all.
