    So, Now that Obama has been re-elected, and virtually nothing has changed in the balance of power in Congress.

    What now? Specifically what now about the Fiscal Cliff? In the 3rd Debate Obama made a very bold Promise that we simply would not go over the Fiscal Cliff.

    I sure hope he is able to keep that promise.

    Any ideas on how he can?

    The solution is some tax increases (almost off them must be borne by the very well off) and some spending cuts (almost all of those will effect only the working classes).


    But to be completely honest I think this nation actually would be better in the long run (in the short run it's disasterous) if we did go over that cliff.

    We cannot keep wasting money on stupid wars, giving tax breaks to the already affluent, and borrowing money too.

    He said forward. Do you want him to actually DO something that moved the country forward?

    He even shed a tear for hiimself. The fiscal cliff is a few years off anyway. Just in time for a would be republican candidate to grab the reigns. OR, maybe Obama gets a thrid term. Remember that other guy that was in there for several terms? He made all kinds of "forward" motion for the country.

    Poor President Obama. He's inherited such a mess. :(
