Republicans should call the president's bluff and enact his "plan" in its entirety. They should make clear that they don't believe it will work and that they think it will lead to disaster, but since the president has said repeatedly that he will veto any bill that doesn't raise taxes on those evil rich people, they are just going to stand aside and let our courageous and brilliant president work his economic magic. It's far better than the alternative, which is that the republicans cave, they reach some phony deal, and then get blamed for the ensuing disaster. Wash your hands of it! There is no better option.

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.

That is the BEST option. The country loses but at least SOME of the people will wake up to realize that the ensuing disaster and economic chaos was their own doing and hopefully turn around on the liberal course this POTUS is taking this great country on.

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...
