  •  Huh? (7+ / 0-)

    The Republicans aren't going to compromise.  We are going over the cliff.

    Jon, what happened to being fair and balanced?  Oh, wait, when one side unfair and imbalanced, that is tough to do.

    •  I actually think the danger of this is overstated. (5+ / 0-)

      Think of what happens when that debt starts getting paid down.  People around the globe will be pouring money into the US to buy the remaining bonds.

      I am not convinced that we cannot survive the Clinton era tax rates and getting back to a reduced military and moderate cuts to domestic spending.

      Then let's talk about what the Republicans will pass in the way of tax breaks.

      The bigger gorilla in February is the obvious obstruction on the Debt Ceiling.  They will not pass a continuation on that and I expect that an Executive Order will be forthcoming.  They will then vote to impeach but it will go nowhere in the Senate.
