  • The 'Fiscal Cliff': What Deal Would You Cut?

Is that "Forward" sign on a cliff somewhere? I'd do exactly what Obama will do - let us go over and then pin his intransigence on the Republicans. Whatever deal gets made we in the middle class will see our taxes go up. Sure, Obama will say they didn't, he did not, etc., etc., but the truth is they will go up because you can tax all the rich folks you want - there ain't enough of them to fund more than a few days of over bloated, spend crazy government. It will change nothing. It has to come from us because "they" won't get their appetites for our money under control. Any president who touts employment figures that include government employees is a smoke and mirrors guy. Government's only product is taxes, regulations and waste. At least a factory makes something that generates income, jobs, and taxes.
