    Ok democrats need to cut spending and the GOP needs to raise taxes. Only problem is the Grover Norquist pledge. Will the GOP stay true to America or Grover? Will the democrats cut those entitlements for the good of the country or sacrifice it all for the poor?

    Republicans will cave to save their sacred Pentagon spending...There will be no cuts of substance.

    we will go off the "cliff" and then the republicans wont be able to call it a tax raise.

    they will have nothing left but a shattered party whos members are all in fear of their next election and the super packs who will target them.

    Obama looked into the Cameras at the 3rd Debate and Promised the Country we would not go over the Fiscal Cliff.

    guess that was just another lie eh?

    At best we will have 4 years of Gridlock and then do it all over again. I sure hope almost nothing Obama or the Republicans desire is realized.

    The dems have been trying to work with the GOP since day one, but they refuse to cut one penny of their own insane spending no matter what.
    It's time for the GOP to get their heads out of their asses.

    Government should always be in fear of the next election. If that was the case we would have a much better government. They are supposed to work for us. They have tricked us into working for them. 10% approval rating and they all got rehired. How fucking stupid is that. Is this the best we can do?

    Republicans haven't been in charge of the spending since '06.

    Hope that helps.
