    Fiscal Cliff?

    Whenever a crisis is manufactured, the government fix-it idea is increased spending, and taking away freedoms.

    Remember when little children could sell lemonade, boys could get paper routes, and parents could decide on schooling for their kids?

    Health insurance will soon be a mandate.

    The ultimate example of procrastination. Don't bother with it until a month before it hits the fan. Why wasn't it "urgent business" 9 months ago?

    May our liberal friends, get what they voted for.

    Can you believe the liberal press is laughing about the lay-offs of twinkie former employees?

    The starting point for BO’s negotiations is his February plan? The one that garnered NO senate votes, even from his own party? How can ANYONE but a blatant BO apologist say he is anywhere NEAR serious in his desire to negotiate when his starting point has been rejected by EVERYONE and the article itself says it has some questionable assumptions built into it? Even CNN admits the GOP has put revenues on the table, but BO is being belligerent and tyrannical if he’s starting from his rejected budget and has drawn lines in the sand about expiring tax cuts.

    BO threatens a national campaign to blame the GOP if the deal doesn’t go through. I see a self-fulfilling prophecy here – he doesn’t WANT a deal, he’d rather we fell off the cliff just so he can blame the GOP.

    So NOW it's become an urgent matter.
    What does he think has created such uncertainty in the economy for the last year?
    (Well, besides what Obamacare is going to cost.)

    As soon as Obama proposes realistic cuts to go along with his class warfare taxation - I will believe he is actually serious

    Yep! Let's print some more money, and tax the rich.

    Good thinking Barry. Maybe we can send more money to the Muslim Brotherhood.

    May our liberal friends, get what they voted for.
