Fiscal Cliff Notes

Rock, I agree. When one of obummer's dumbocrat stooges introduces his bill in the House or the Senate, ALL Republicans should vote "No" or "Present." Just make sure there are enough "Yea" votes from the dumbocrats to pass the bill in both houses. Then when the country really starts going to H..., the Republicans can say "Don't blame us, we had nothing to do with it." Maybe then, some of the brainwashed union idiots and dumbed down younger people will realize that they made a mistake. Forget about the welfare bums though. 95% of them will never change. A lot of them wouldn't take a job unless it paid $20 an hour and included a new Cadilac.

Amid all the political and media hoopla about the "fiscal cliff" crisis, there are a few facts that are worth noting.

First of all, despite all the melodrama about raising taxes on "the rich," even if that is done it will scarcely make a dent in the government's financial problems. Raising the tax rates on everybody in the top two percent will not get enough additional tax revenue to run the government for ten days.

And what will the government do to pay for the other 355 days in the year?

All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting "the rich" to pay...
