The gravest error Republican officials can commit is to share OWNERSHIP of any tax increase. Whatever is passed to patch the media's mythical "fiscal cliff"fable will not be enough to keep the U.S. out of another recession and eventually TOTAL economic collapse. When China decides to cash the bonds she bought, and we default, starting thinking outside the box - a split.
We are 80 TRILLION in the hole, when you add unfunded mandates.
ANY tax increase will tank the economy. Stagflation is around the corner. THIS FISCAL CLIFF GIMMICK SHOULD BE RADIOACTIVE FOR REPUBLICAN REPRESENTATIVES. Let Obama and the Dems. claim ownership in full.
