Let's give the Democrats exactly what they want. Let's NOT go over the cliff.
The liberal media will blame Republicans for the grief then will credit Democrats for middle-class tax cuts afterwards. Lets not try to mitigate the coming economic problems. Republican governors in states like Ohio, Wisconsin, and New Mexico made their economies better, so the voters there voted for Obama.
If Republicans do ANYTHING, they will not get all the blame for the bad stuff and none of the credit for the good. There should be no opposition but no Republican fingerprints on a deal either.
Cave. Then the Democrats will own the economy and all its trouble. We can repeat 2010 in 2014.
