Let's go over the cliff, it will be better than putting off the inevitable pain. This will be quicker, more painful, but reduce the long term suffering. Kinda like pulling the bandaid off quickly. Taxes on everyone will go up no matter what happens, and spending will go up, especially if we agree to a short term "fix." The longer we wait to deal with this, the deeper in the hole our economy will go. I am for facing the music, demonstrating immediate effects of Obama care, raising taxes, and cutting spending.
