They aught to throw Bernanke and Greenspan right off the cliff with Clinton. The same Clinton that repealed The Glass-Steagall act in 1999.

Boner must have been out of the country for the past few years, missed the passage of the law by the Congress, the signature by the President, the upholding of the law by the Supreme Court, and the RE-ELECTION of our President.

The SC said it was a tax, meaning it can be changed and repealed anytime. Roberts slipped one by the clueless left. The re-election of the house told obama to work with them, as it told Clinton in 94, which he got the message.

Nobama need to get it, and quick or your going to have a 4 year lame duck on your hands. LMAO

Well, here we go again. Don't budge on this, Mr. President, unless you can make The Affordable Care Act even more effective. If the fiscal cliff becomes a reality, the Republican party will fall off with it. (It might almost be worth it.)

It's a two way street. The President was elected to be the leader. He ought to lead and be the first to put a real compromise on the table.

And repeal is one avenue of approach. The House holds the purse strings, so another avenue would be to simply let the Affordable Care Act go unfunded. Plenty of programs/laws go unfunded every year. No money, no implementation.

You bet it is a tax and it must be repeal. Did you know that they are planning to hire 3,000 more IRS to go after our taxes because of Obamacare?

Shortly after the election, however, Boehner told ABC he would not make repealing the law his mission saying Obamacare was the "law of the land." Boehner later walked back the comment tweeting the GOP's goal remains a full repeal of the law.

Boner pulled a Romney.

The Koch brothers must have called.

So the 34th time is a charm for Boner?

That's how stupid teabaggers are.

They still think tax cuts creates U.S. jobs.

STUPID teabaggers.

Wrong on both counts. For a precursor of obamacare, turn to the setting up of the exchanges, just one of the many complications that seem insurmountable.

So far not a single state has one set up, either internally or at the direction of the administration. One state made the effort, and their outline was rejected by HHS for non-compliance that they couldn't address specifically.

The real story? Ms. Sebelius has not yet written the language outlining the requirements of the exchanges. All states were to have submitted plans by Nov 14th, I think. The rules haven't been written yet, so the deadline has been extended to sometime in December.

Look at all the crap that's supposed to happen in January.
What a joke on us. Buckle up.

Just see what he can do in this "four more years" !

Fiscal cliff is just the way that FED uses to make the stock market up and down by controlling the good and bad news every day. Americans do not really jump into the cliff.
