    I say go over the cliff, end the filibuster and the Senate can send bills over one by one to fix the results.  Then the House can decide, over and over, where they stand.   If the Dems are smart they can use this as an opportunity to get the kind of cuts to the military budget we should be making and they can trade cuts and increases in various domestic programs, again bill by bill.  The scariest thing I see out there is a "grand compromise".  That is just an excuse to give the GOP something for nothing.  No, let's deal with things one at a time, the country will come out ahead if we do. Oh and on the "debt ceiling", that one is handled by the Constitution which states that the US will pay its bills, so let the GOP sit on that.
