Why Republicans Are to Blame for the Fiscal Cliff

The problem did not begin "back in 2011" ..... It existed for certain in early 2010 when Obama put together the Deficit Commission. ... Simpson-Bowless released their report about 2 years ago.. Obama ignored the recommendations. He has never adequately explained why he ignored the Commission. Simpson-Bowles addressed both spending and revenues. It could have been a basis for negotiations among Congressional leaders and the President. Unfortunately, Obama failed to lead regarding the deficit problem. The result of Obama's failures is the Fiscal Cliff and Obama's deficits exceeding $1.0 trillion annually. Republicans are not at all to blame for this disaster.

Simpson-Bowless said we needed spending cut + tax increases. We don't. We need spending cuts, and lots of them.

And not just welfare and entitlements. We need entire departments to close. Anything that's not constitutional gets eliminated; anything that IS constitutional gets cut in half, including DoD.

Or debt is drastic. Our strategy to retire that debt must also be drastic.

I myself wonder if O dumb uh is some kind of evil genius, deliberately doing everything he can (violating the Constitution,using the politics of personal destruction to defeat Romney, dissing ALL military and veterans, having a RETARD as VP,lying, breaking the law, bagging about himself while dissing America, acting like a rock start instead of a head of state, clumsily trying to cover up his innumerable mistakes and idiocies,etc.) to try to provoke Main Street America into angry rioting, whereupon he can declare martial law and run the country as he pleases, with opposition either locked up or just exterminated. Not for nothing has he been using Marxist rhetoric and slogans.
America is about to plunge over the so-called fiscal cliff -- and Americans are fighting mad about it. According to the latest polls, 77 percent of Americans believe that the fiscal cliff -- a combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts set to kick in at the beginning of 2013 -- will hurt them personally. A full 70 percent of Americans want a compromise solution. And 67 percent believe that political leaders will act like "spoiled children."

Most important, though, Americans blame Republicans for the situation. While just 34 percent of Americans blame President Obama for the current fiscal cliff...
