Actually polls show that people have finally wised up and know that the Republicans are responsible for the “Fiscal Cliff” and will hold Republicans to blame if the U.S. goes over it.
Pres Obama ran and won on raising the rate on the rich to 39.7%. Ronmey/Republicans ran and lost on cutting taxes on the 1%.
The “Fiscal Cliff” is a Win-Win for Pres Obama. Avoid it and Pres Obama gets to raise the rate to 39.7 on the 1% just like he promised to during the election. Go over the “Fiscal Cliff” and voters know it was because Republicans chose the tax cuts for the 1% over the tax cuts for the 99%.
Elections have consequences.
