    I never liked "fiscal cliff."  Or Dems using the terms "pro-life" (anti-choice) or "bailout" (rescue) etc.

    But I'm not sure if it hurts Dems as much in this case.  The Bush tax cuts will expire on their own, and the Repubs will block a bill to give huge tax cuts to the middle class, simply because it does not extend those tax cuts to billionaires.  So we can set this up so the Repubs are the ones taking us over the cliff.

    Still, I hate the term fiscal cliff but am struggling to come up with an alternative.

    How about "Republican Hostage Deadline?"
