Hey, Repubs...Richard Trumpka has recently said that the fiscal cliff is a lie and a ploy to scare people. So the Repubs should AGREE with Trumpka and insist there is no fiscal cliff.
Then what would Obama do? Contradict Trumpka or agree with him?
So one of two outcomes - tick off Trumpka and the unions or allow the country to crash.
Repubs need to get smart already and start playing the Dems against each other...god knows they have enough loons in their party who could be exploited. Trumpka is a case in point.
