    John Barrasso On Fiscal Cliff: Obama Wants To Go Over The Edge (VIDEO)

    Okay, now watch the rw's falling all over themselves to agree with this even thought they ALWAYS say HuffPo is liberal and never prints anything bad about President Obama or the Dems.

    Of course he does! It would be one of his major accomplishments.

    He doesnt mind. He wet dreams massive taxes on everyone. Not surprising that he has no solutions other than collect a few billion while ringing up 6 trillion in debt over 4 years and bitching that W was unpatriotic for his 4 trillion debt. Incompetent hypocrite.

    Q. Has it been introduced as a legislative bill?

    A. No.

    Q. Why not?

    A. Because the "fiscal cliff" debate is nothing more than political gamesmanship. Obama sold a load of snake oil to the voters and now needs the GOP to rescue him from his ridiculous promises. He now wants to eat his cake and have it, too, i.e., blame the GOP both for tax increases and spending cuts. His planning horizon is the 2014 election, after which he doesn't give a damn about the U.S. economy.

    OP is being misleading (again)

    HuffPo isn't saying that, a Republican leader is saying that. HUffPo is merely posting the story.

    Owe Bama wants to raise taxes on the "rich"... If we go over the fiscal cliff, he wins big time because he will have raised the taxes on everybody which is his real goal anyway. So, no matter what happens, he wins.

    US Congress Shows No Urgency on 'Fiscal Cliff'
    December 27, 2012 — Four days before Americans face massive automatic tax increases and deep federal spending cuts, Washington is showing no signs of forging a deficit reduction agreement to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff.” Many lawmakers are absent from Washington altogether, and the rest are pointing fingers and casting blame.

    Fiscal Cliff Posturing in US is Old Political Game
    December 27, 2012 WASHINGTON — With every day that passes the United States is edging closer to the fiscal cliff - a combination of tax hikes and federal spending cuts that could push the country back into recession. So why do some politicians appear to be moving so slowly?
