"On second thought...." EXACTLY. That's the problem. Conservatives have been screaming wolf about the debt for decades. Remember Ross Perot? Yet, the economy hasn't collapsed. The government is different than a household. The masses think we can keep living on borrowed and printed money forever. Government debt does not seem scary. Politicians and Pundits need to explain the dangers in graphic terms.
The reason President Obama and Republicans can't come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff negotiations is that they don't share the same goals. This is also the key to understanding why President Obama appears far less worried about going over the cliff.

Republicans are focused on restoring the nation's financial health by promoting economic growth and reducing our horrendous deficits and debt. President Obama's primary aim is to complete his project of fundamentally transforming America.

I ask you loyal Democrats to please consider these things. Obama has demonstrated almost no concern for our crushing debt or deficits -- at least not since...
