    Republicans need to look back at the past 4 years and realize regardless of what they do anything bad will be blamed on them. It is time to stop worrying about blame and do what is best for the country. You need to stand your ground sure it will be painful now but a little pain compared to what is in store for the near future if the deficit is not fixed. I agree taxes should not go up and you have said as much but the Democrats will not allow them to stay the same and that is just that. We need to stand our ground at the debt ceiling which is the only place where we will have the ability to save this nation. Do not allow that ceiling to go up without huge fixes to spending and the tax code, Also use it to force budget out of the senate. No budget in four years is just ridiculous.

    At least if we go over the cliff maybe more people will actually start paying close attention rather than letting the fly by media say whatever they want and take it as fact.

    I hope the GOP continues to stand its ground. But I am sure for a much different reason.

    The GOP is dying a slow death.... by their own hand.

    You retards don't even realize, they have no ground to stand on.

    How do you think Wall Street is going to react to their incompetence? Not just the market, but the people who run the markets and EVERYONE who is invested in the market?

    We will never vote GOP again.

    This country is dying a slow death at our own hand and you retards don’t even realize it. Every country in the world besides the US has already begun Austerity measures to curb their deficits and fix their debt. But you idiot Democrats live in a fantasy world where there is nothing wrong with borrowing so much money that as soon as interest rates go back up all our revenue will be going towards interest. The problem with next year is less with the fiscal cliff and more with the possibility that interest rates on our treasuries could start to go up as more see other countries handling their debt while we keep digging deeper and deeper.

    It does not matter. There were indicators pointing to a recession over three months ago. They were already predicting a recession in 2013. So if republican bend and give in to what Obama wants and a recession happens then it is the republicans fault. If they do not give in and we have a recession, then it is the republicans fault. At the end of the day, it is better to stand on principal and do what is best for the country than try and playing a lose, lose situation with todays media.

    I predict a mass exodus of people from the failed Democrat plantation in the near future.

    Because eventually, the democrats/liberals will wake up and have to face the fact that their fiscal and social policies are destructive to both our nation and it's people.

    And the steadfast conservative Republican wing of the party will be there welcoming these former democrat/liberal refugees with open arms. :cool:

    Rooting for economic hardship to develop, worsen or persist is not a winning strategy.
