  •  That was part of a grand bargain (1+ / 0-)

    in which Obama would have had to give up chained CPI on SS and probably more Medicare cuts.

    My comment wasnt directed at you, it was directed at people, on both sides, saying we should stop this deal. I think the deal, given the circumstances, is pretty good. They lock in a lot on revenue, get UI, and several other tax credits that were in the stimulus.

    There's no guarantee that you get that 250k threshold by going over the cliff. And you probably dont get UI, and the other stimulus provisions.  

    I guess I have always figured, outside of a grand bargain, there is going to be some battle over the debt ceiling. GOP wont let that go easily, it's the only leverage they have.
