The cliff is going to hurt the poor and low middle class the most, the people Obama is supposed to be taking care of.............but once he took entitlement reform off the table, this is the offer he should have expected. Obama wants the Republicans to cave on more taxes with nothing significant in return.

You can't really say it will hurt the poor, IF ENTITLEMENTS aren't being cut, unless you're a complete moron... LMAOROTFU~! Soapy dope=looney bin.

If we go off the cliff, some entitlements are cut automatically. Additionally, the economists predict a recession, where the lowest skilled have the highest probability of losing their jobs. I shouldn't have to explain this to you if you had .1% of the financial acumen you claim to have.

Hmmm ? Your contention has nothing to do with my ability or reality...Good try though, try harder.

The lowest level are the cheapest, middle management is next, nutcase.

Not true, in a recession, discretionary spending is curtailed first, so first to go are fast food workers, lawn care and landscaping, house cleaners, etc. People that won't be able to find other things easily.

If an agreement isn't reached, the Democrats are practically guaranteed to take the House in 2014. The polls are very clear the Republicans get the blame if an agreements isn't reached.

Americans are also very clear that they want higher taxes on the rich and no cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

Automatic Medicare cuts are part of the cliff as well as other automatic entitlements cuts such as an end to the extended unemployment benefits. You also will lose the bonus child credit, alternative minimum tax "patch", FICA holiday, and the lowest tax bracket being removed (as well as the rest of the Bush era tax cut).

These would be the low information voters that elected the Marxist in Chief for a 2nd term. Kind of ironic that those are the ones he is going to cause to lose their jobs.

Like they were guaranteed to take it after getting the healthcare bill rammed down our throats in 2010. No guarantees biggee schmalls.

You are painting with a wide brush what you say "Americans". What will you do when we are 22 Trillion in debt in 9 years?

Bridgework, don't know what Schmahl will say but it will likely need to be in Mandarin.
