    Will a single one of the deficit hawks note that the so-called "fiscal cliff" will accomplish their supposed aims better than any of the competing "plans", and thus make ridiculously hypocritical their objections or fearmongering?

    Any deficit hawk or deficit-uber-alles politician whining about the "fiscal cliff" needs to write a 500 word essay on why they hate something they claim to be existentially for -- massive deficit reduction via any means.

    •  absolutely - the fiscal cliff is a deficit hawk's (0+ / 0-)

      dream. Now, they would much rather reduce spending, but going over the cliff cuts the deficit in half. The bond market would really like it if they thought it would stick.

      "let's talk about that"
