It might be a good thing to let everybody's taxes go up. Let them be called the obama/reid tax hikes. He can't blame Bush for them. He's the guy who been in office for four years and Reid has been there forever. With no budget for 3 of them. Maybe we will hear a call for bas line spending cuts from the masses. Even those 47% who pay no taxes now.

The White House has been hyping its #My2K Twitter hashtag in an attempt to galvanize supporters to contact their Congressional representatives to demand action to avert the fiscal cliff.  The administration estimates that unless Congress moves, the average family's tax bill will jump by more than $2,000, starting on the first of January.  The implication, of course, is that Republicans are once again standing in the way of resolving this problem.  Show of hands -- as the media breathlessly follows every minor twist and turn of these negotiations, how many of you have seen this fact reported?
