    A great use of fossil fuels.

    It’s the Republicans in Congress who built the cliff, notably Boehner and Cantor, not the President.

    It was built because the President is too busy to see that he can’t just keep spending. He is turning out trillion dollar deficits!

    “Aww man, do I have to actually deal with this now?” Yes you do and no more excuses either.

    Maybe congress will get their act together but I suspect the republicans will continue to block everything.

    It really comes down to whether Boehner is willing to pass a budget that the Senate will also pass. Last year, Boehner walked away from a deal because he was afraid of the Tea Party.

    I say let’s have it! And then downgrade to BBB+ or something. It’s only fair for a banana republic that can’t work together politically…

    The fiscal cliff is owned by congress, not Obama. It was designed BY CONGRESS to do exactly what it’s doing now. Obama has already said what he’d do to address it. Congress can choose to act on that or not.

    That’s Spker Boner and Turtle Man McConnell driving and don’t forget that.

    When everyone agrees on something you don’t like, your friends were obviously coerced and cannot be held responsible for the decision.


    So, even though the Democratic minority in the Senate (a majority in the Senate is 60 or more) and President Obama agreed, the entire fault belongs to the House and the 40-odd Republican Senators.

    Has everyone forgotten that O’s last budget got no “aye” votes in the Senate?

    @mikefive

    In context:

    -

    “The White House sought to provide cover for Democrats to vote against the Obama budget resolution before the vote, arguing the resolution offered by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) was different from Obama’s budget because it did not include policy report language.

    Democrats made the same point on the floor Wednesday in explaining their votes.

    The Senate also voted on four GOP budget blueprints, which were all defeated. "

    I sometimes wonder if Democrats and Republicans aren’t in collusion to sabotage a vote on a real budget by including nit-wittery in budgets that would come up for a vote. These “allocations”(?) that keep getting past get almost no scrutiny as compared to a budget.

    It is the President’s job to present a budget proposal to Congress. He did that.
    It is the job of Congress to PASS a Budget. They haven’t.
    You can’t blame the President for the fact that Congress is REFUSING to do it’s job, and then complaining that there are consequences.

    The two guys in the front seat are senators, one is repubican, one is democrat. If they don’t turn the wheel, the President will indeed go over the cliff, and so will a lot of Americans AND our credit rating.
