Supposedly there are grand negotiations ongoing in Washington in search of a grand bargain to avoid a grand calamity - pushing the nation over the fiscal cliff.   It appears, however, that whatever discussion is really happening is focused on how much additional "revenue" to extract from taxpayers' pockets instead of how strict of a diet to impose on the federal government.

The Democrats are obsessing about raising tax rates, while the GOP talks about closing loopholes.  Either option takes more out of the private economy and puts it into the government's pocket resulting in a bigger government and smaller economy.
