    Don't forget there is actually a point to reigning in Obama's treasonous spending excesses, peeps. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the 'fiscal cliff' is good for us:


    'Should the fiscal tightening goes into effect as scheduled, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects a decline in GDP during 2013, and unemployment to spike back up to 9.1 percent.

    The agency predicts, however, that after this shock year of fiscal contraction, “economic growth will pick up, and the labor market will strengthen, returning output to its potential level … and shrinking the unemployment rate to 5.5 percent by 2018.”

    Gallup: Americans want action on 'fiscal cliff' | The Daily Caller

    Now, it will of course wreck Obama's second term, but long after Rubio is elected in '16, Barry can look back and take credit for making the economic boom happen thanks to his 'hard choices.'

    IT is a win win!!!!

    The sooner we go over the sooner we hit bottom and the sooner we can start climbing back up.

    I say let's go for it.

    The fiscal cliff seems to be exactly what Obama was running his campaign on: raising taxes. To me, it seems like he would welcome it with open arms.

    Make it so!

    When the smoke clears in a few years, Obama can claim he was for it before he was against it.

    Or visa versa.

    Yes, increasing government revenue to lower the debt seems like a huge mistake.

    Lets go for it

    The US could use some sacrifice for a while. Higher Taxes and Less Spending

    We have already tried Lower Taxes and More Spending under Bush
