The best thing that can happen for this country is to allow us to go over this "so-called" fiscal cliff. Doing so forces the debate back into the public arena. If congress is going to "debate and act" on my life, I want some say in the process. The real fight is about the debt ceiling, to abolish it or at least allow congress to raise it at will and thereby allowing congress to spend and tax at will. This is a power no-one should allow.
