    Democrats happier than Republican with fiscal cliff deal
    ...for averting austerity at the wrong time, causing a recession that the US would have exported to every single one of its trading partners.

    The other danger is the mandatory sequestered cuts. Those too are economic crushers that the IMF warns would infect the world economy.

    When the US economy is stabilized and growing -- then tax hikes are the order of the day -- and urgently needed to evaporate the deficit.

    As for the Debt Limit hike -- thankfully, that stupidity would only hurt Americans.

    However, I predict that we won't hear a peep out of Republicans this time. They will all get phone calls from Our Overlords -- and that will be the end of it.
