    Instead of sitting down and negotiating
    Huh?

    This issue has been negotiated to death.  Supposedly the first budget deal was 98% of what the Republicans wanted.  Then the "Supercommittee" could not appease the GOP (or anyone, really...)

    There has been enough negotiation.  The so called "cliff" is nothing but more kabuki, and it was the decisions of the previous administration that contributed most to the deficit/debt issues.  The President won re-election convincingly, the public supports his general outline for fiscal reform, and the GOP put itself in this position by messing with the debt ceiling and creating this sequestration issue.

    Boo-freaking-hoo.  WATB's - no doubt.
