If the U.S. government ends up careening off the "fiscal cliff," Republicans in Congress stand to shoulder most of the blame, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

Fifty-three percent of Americans said Republicans in Congress would be more to blame in that instance, according to a Pew Research Center poll conducted in the days following the election. Twenty-nine percent said that Obama would be more to blame, while 10 percent said both the president and Republicans would share blame.

Over we go,that way EVERYBODY pays their fair share,everybody will have skin in the game,not just those that pay the most taxes. That's what the President said right,everybody has to pay their fair share. I heard him say that about 999 times right? He did say that didn't he? Everybody has to pay their fair share right. Get er done!!!

Whats the matter,concerned you will have to pay your fair share. The President did say that right,everyone has to pay their fair share,he did say that,I heard him on at least two occasions say "everyone" should pay their fair share.

Are you saying that the President didn't say everyone should pay their share and that people didn't vote for him based on what he said. Just a bit confused aren't you Larry? As long as you bring up the top 2% Larry,how much do you think they pay as a percentile of taxes collected.

Our elected representatives are supposed to represent the voters. The majority wants it, so do it.

you must be unemployed if you want it raised on the middle class , and not be much of a family man to have it raised on your kids unless they're unemployed like their daddy.

If the bottom 50% pay a 20% tax instead of a 2% tax, we could make the tax system more fair and collect twice as much revenue as we would if we gave these 400 wealthy americans a 30% AMT. Maybe a 20% AMT for the bottom 99% and a 30%AMT for the top 1% would balance the Obama bloated budget too.

Both sides are at fault:

GOP holds middle class tax cuts hostage in favor of the higher-income folks.

Dems won't make MEANINGFUL cuts to wasteful spending in Washington.

It's round and round down there, one giant motherf---ing circus of power plays while the rest of us suffer. It's a joke, and quite frankly, a puke-inducing realization that this is who/what runs our country. So much bloated waste while we pinch pennies to get from day to day.

No,just agreeing with the President that "everyone pay their fair share". He did say that right? I thought I heard him say that many times right,everyone has to pay their fair share. Could have sworn he said everyone has to pay their fair share.

How much would you like the most wealthy to pay,just their fair share or more including yours. Are you paying your fair share, I mean the President said everyone has to pay their fair share right,could have sworn I heard him say that,you know everyone has to pay their fair share.
