    I am so tired of  being told we can't do this or this will happen. So, that somehow makes every other horrible thing that happends ok. Your argument is a self-fulling strawman where you chase your tail and never catch it. Nonsense.

    •  It's a narrower question (0+ / 0-)

      Of whether the terms of the proposal, in the aggregate, are better than the terms of going over the cliff, divided by the likelihood that the deal gets agreed to.

      As long as the Republicans control one chamber, yes, we won't be able to get the tax increases we want, and only those tax increases, without any spending cuts, or only spending cuts that exclude social programs, entitlements or otherwise.

      Blame the Obama 2008 voters who didn't show up in 2010, a gerrymandering year.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
