      ... UC benefits, etc.

      The Cliff is self-inflicted by Congress and correctable as soon as the House Republicans want their defense contractors to get paid instead of cut. The debt ceiling is an issue that must be cured by more than six-month temporizings, but it's apparently down the road long enough that President Obama can veto a bill he doesn't lie and not, by that action, tube American credit.

      But middle class tax increases on January 1 are not fine. Neither is gutting child care credits, etc.

      2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
