Your guy said before the election that he was willing to make a deal with $4 of spending cuts for each $1 of tax increases. Where are the spending cuts, if he was telling the truth. Spending cuts in the current year are the only ones that count. The rest are just lies waiting for an political excuse.
Actually, I am all for cutting the deficit, so going over the cliff is fine with me. We need to stop sending the bill for Washington's vote buying to the future.
