  •  The cliff is a good thing. It's really a bunny (10+ / 0-)

    slope.  Go over it and they will pass the Obama tax cut for under 250 in January.

    I'm glad Barack Obama is our President.

    •  There are things that need to be negotiated. (0+ / 0-)

      Don't forget that UI is set to expire for over 2 million people. I'm not sure what will happen to them if they just do nothing until Jan.

      •  My question is what you will give up for that. (0+ / 0-)

        Negotiations mean compromise which means you must give up something.  A UE extesnion would be a good thing, but what will you negotiate away to get it?  Move Medicare age to 68?  It will cost.

        This is why I think negotiations cannot succeed and it probbaly is better off if they do not.

        I'm glad Barack Obama is our President.
