This is so much baloney. There is NO avoiding the fiscal cliff. It is going to happen sooner or later all they can do is delay it some more. The longer they delay it the worst it will be. Politicians want to print more money to avoid the fallout when everyone finally realizes they have been rbber why give them more than they have already extorted? Get it over with now.

In his first formal press conference in months, Barack Obama showed that getting re-elected can increase a president's confidence and combativeness. He staked out tough stands on several issues, especially on the looming budget negotiations.

Looking ahead to the "fiscal cliff" on Dec. 31, when the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire and sequestration cuts government spending sharply, Obama demanded $1.6 trillion of increased revenues as part of any budget bargain.

That's twice the number he and Speaker John Boehner agreed on in the grand bargain talks in the summer of 2011.

Those talks fell apart when Obama telephoned Boehner and raised his demand...
