    could avoid the Fiscal Cliff without turning our backs on our most vulnerable - specifics meaning how that would be accomplished given the Republicans' clear intent to force the President to turn his back on the most vulnerable.

    This problem is pretty serious although I do not agree that going off of the Fiscal Cliff - that passing the deadline would be as devastating as you say it will be.

    The GOP will scramble to reinstate the tax cuts as quickly as possible.  Letting the cuts expire might be the least damaging course of action here.  It would create a tax lowering frenzy that might not be quite so easily diverted to their mission of destroying Medicare and Medicaid.
