    There is no tax hike, just a return to sanity. And there is no provision, just a calender. The GOP is royally screwed, they have to do something – or the thing they fear the most will happen. But everything they can do will include that very same thing, because the President simply has to do nothing in order to make it happen to them. Brilliant! Reminds me of that computer in “War Games” that has to play against itself to “learn” that the only move that promises victory is a move that can’t be played because it ensures defeat…

    After 4 years of creating chasms between rich and poor, men and women, workers and employers, by Obama’s class warfare….the Dictator built that wall of TAX THE RICH OR GO OFF THE CLIFF….“my way or the highway”….deadline looming because Obama will not “openly negotiate”….

    The poor elephant can’t agree to a tax hike because the wall is in the way.

    Most Americans, 53 percent, would blame congressional Republicans, according to a Pew Research Center poll. Just 27 percent would blame Mr. Obama, according to the poll, conducted Nov. 28 – Dec. 2.

    I heard about that Pew Poll on MSNBC.
    Some of the pundits brought up the subject of how the rest of the world looks at the situation.
    They disagree about whether the stock markets have already factored in going over the slope, cliff or even garden?
    Some think other countries may blame Obama more.

    Other countries of the world are generally far more liberal that the US is. They certainly would not blame a president that is conceived as being far more liberal than the Republicans in the House of Representatives.

    Since every country in the world except Pakistan was in favor of Obama being elected, I think they will blame the GOP.

    The cliff is man made and therefore can be unmade. They will find ways to mitigate disaster, if they have any smarts, and the cuts are on a sliding scale and they can always change the rules after we go over the cliff. Its mostly political theater to make themselves look important. IMO they will exempt the military from cuts and take away the mortgage deduction from the middle class to pay for it.

    Radish: you’re correct, but Pakistanis had a USA Presidential candidates preference of something like 13%:12%, so I reckon they don’t count anyway.
    Every other country in the world thought it was a good result, and we all breathed a sigh of relief.
    I only commentate here to try to bring world perspective to the opinions. It is typically agreed that the only country that is less aware of world news and opinion is North Korea.

    Why not start at the top? Tax everyone in Washington making over $250,000 at 100% and see what happens!!

    Not a tax hike. An elimination of a tax break.
    Taxes are returning to what they would have been all along if there had been no “discount.”
