Democrats favor going over the Fiscal Cliff

Insanity rules Democrats?

Some Dems: drive over 'fiscal cliff,' then bargain.....
"You're going to have big financial market repercussions to this," warned economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office. "Those sorts of confidence measures you don't control — and they happen abruptly."

Why is it called a cliff? I don't see it as such. Having said that, no way in hell either party will allow the cuts to the military, so a resolution is a done deal, imho.

My effective tax rate will increase by about 2%. Under Obama's proposal, my current tax rate will actually go DOWN another 1%.

If the dems could let it happen and blame it on the repubs they would. Then, they would have another good crisis to use as an excuse to move us even further toward their goals.

If they go off of the fiscal cliff how many billions will the taxpayers owe? Didn't the Obama administration say they would cover the liability of companies laying people off while not following the law? It sounds about right that the democrats would support wasting more taxpayer dollars.

Your support of Obama contributed to the mess.

Guess we'll never know what Romney would have done, my point was democrats love a good crisis, it gives them a reason to move farther left, especially if they can blame the problems on the right. It is the general direction America is going.

Guess Mr Obama is now a neocon?

1. Neocon

Neoconservative. Criminally insane spenders that believe in killing brown people for the new world order. Huge Orwellian government, unfathomable amounts of spending, bomb tens of thousands of people to death to rearrange the globe. Take the worst aspects of the liberal and conservative positions and combine them into one and you would have a NeoCon.
Neocons are the greatest threat to life, liberty and property this country has ever known.

Having already figured my tax liability for 2013, that calculator didn't match my figures at all. Being retired payroll tax doesn't figure in, but not including that it not correct. Obama will cost me $2,010 more than the current schedule. But I knew that long before I voted against him.

It is becoming increasing apparent you like Mr. Paul, but your posts are getting harder to understand. That isn't a criticism, just an honest observation.
