The cliff is an imaginary line that my 10 yr old understands. Congress is creating an administrative nightmare for payroll and allocation of funding etc.

So anything a Rep does its bad. Anything a dem does is good and any problem that the US is under is a minimized illusion?

So this cliff is a bunch of hooey then why is the media covering this and why is BOTH sides even back in dc to do anything?


If its not a dem/ rep thing, then why didn't we face a 'fiscal cliff' during the 7 times the debt ceiling was raised under Bush?

Its all just unnecessary political brinksmanship

So youre saying deficit spending is good when the economy is strong and bad when the economy is weak?

I suppose I never looked at it that way

Neither do I.

Of course when you're talking about Reagan you're talking about a percentage of less than a trillion starting point over 8 years versus a percentage of a 10 trillion starting point over 4 years with Obama.

No one has the balls to say and do what really needs to be done in Washington DC.

We hired these men and women to do a job for us, and they refuse to look after the well being of this Republic.

Starting to sound a little scary, but most won't really care if they can still pump gas, and watch their flat screen TV's.
