If the Republicans were smart they’d agree to a deal on the “fiscal cliff” only as part of an overall budget agreement submitted by the White House to Congress for this fiscal year.
Put the onus SQUARE on the White House for this.
The title of this article says it all. Obama doesn’t want a solution to the “fiscal cliff”. What he really wants is the chaos that results from an economic collapse.
The Republicans need to hang tight and fight tough against any effort to brand them as the cause of an economic collapse. Any tax increases will be hung around their necks like a cursed albatross but no tax increase at this point will save the nation.
The deficit, no matter how much the Democrats try to shift the blame, belongs to BHO2. He brought it on and he alone owns it.
This Republican dominated House of Representatives must continue to try to do the people’s business honorably. If nothing else, it will not be their fault that the economy collapses - this is the Democratic Party’s economy.
BHO2 is following the Cloward-Piven plan to collapse the system, and out of the resulting chaos establish communism. That is why he has armed certain governmental departments.
Get ready for a civil war, folks!
“If the Republicans were smart”...... they would not have been doumb enough to stick with the position of protecting tax rates for the rich and stuck with talking about repairing the economy with something besides Trickle Down.
Used to call them GOPe, now a better will be GOPd (for dummy).
Now the only way they can go is to refuse to go along and refuse to do any more Continuing Resolutions on that old tired budget from 2008. Even if the dems are able to mud the GOP with some of this, in two years the whole world can change and the sheeple will have forgotten 2012 Fiscal Cliff.
Obama will get his tax increase while not giving up a single penny in spending even thought he says he will. AND, the media will carry his water on this issue. Republicans need to call Obama’s bluff, challenge the media to report the facts and face the inevitable cliff - we have already gone over it - and make Obama eat it.
