How far over the Cliff are you willing to go? [View all]

My take is that - if my taxes having to go up by the amount they will, is the price that I have to pay to make the rich pay a much larger portion ( remember that cap gains will go up from 15% to 39.6%)..

then I say bring it on - PERMANENTLY.

What do you feel about going over the cliff?

You dont mind going over - but only as a negotiating means for us to get a better deal than we can get now.

You think we should go over the cliff and stay there ( ie make sure the rich pay the full Clinton era rates)
