Obama should aerial-pamphlet the Capitol with leaflets detailing his plan, and then film Boehner, McTurtle, and the rest indignantly insisting "we're still waiting for a plan while the Presisn't is on the campaign trail *single emo tear*" as the leaflets fall about their illiterate partisan fanatical ears.

OlderGuy: Tigger: SlothB77: Obama wants us to go over the fiscal cliff. He wants those large cuts to defense to go into effect. He wants the economy to crash again. When it does, he can introduce new reforms that will significantly expand the reach and power of the federal government.

You are a farking crazy person.

Can't handle the truth, huh? He,s actually 100% correct....

I was thinking this too, the best time to push an agenda is during a crisis. Heck, even the people surrounding him have made this gesture in the past.

fracto: skullkrusher: jst3p: skullkrusher: un4gvn666: jgbrowning: fracto: Debeo Summa Credo: Is making the rich pay more worth making everyone else pay more?



Hell yes.

so it is all about "soaking the rich" even if you have to cut off your nose to do it? That's pretty lame.

Maybe it's about "The Bush tax cuts were a big mistake and we all need to pay a little more"?

even if it takes money out of the hands of people and an economy which can ill afford it but hey, at least rich people are paying more in taxes so it's all good?

Sorry, no. Terrible, terrible idea.

Yes. it is a terrible idea, but the premise of the question was between that and something worse, so terrible it is.

So here we have a perfect example with whats wrong wit American politics. Its no longer about finding a good solution, candidate, etc...its about selling the people the lesser of 2 evils. A shiatty deal is a shiatty deal, even if its less shiatty than the other option.
