That's what is down below the cliff for everyone except the politicians.

The fault is and has been DNC incrementalism and RINo's for reElection.
The FiscalCliff packaged as voters remorse always happens during the family holiday season.I propose an 'Oath of Service Waiver',those elected will agree to do their job in the time allotted or take a 1 year leave of absence, the district responsible for sending them loses representation for that time period and they can run on an emergency election in the next voting cycle.

We know that rich are going to see their taxes go up. The problem is that just taxing them more won't keep up with current spending. The best course of action will be to lower the 'rich' designation to anyone making over $100K. Even at a 40% tax rate, they will still make well over the national average.

No matter how much they tax everyone, it will not help.

I find it funny that Obama is meeting with the head banker fraudster in Jamie Dimon. As CEO, JP Morgan is exposed on $70+ trillion on unfunded derivatives. More than the nations GDP.

So they could tax 100% of everyones earnings and it will not matter. We cannot cover JP Morgan's derivative bets.

And that is just 1 company. Add in Goldman Sach's, CITI, Bank of NY Mellon, HSBC, Bank of America exposures in the derivatives markets and the world as a whole cannot cover it. We are F'd!

American spoke in a clear voice and elected Obama to assure that tomorrow will never be as good as yesterday.
Whether we gave Obama the mandate to destroy all hope for a bright future for our families because we are sadists or masochists is for historians to decide.

I believe the 47 percenter was the catch phrase of the last election - something Romney said quietly - and showed just how much ROmney and his party dismissed a large chunk of America.

Bad move, and good consequence!

while we realize you coloreds see obama as the messiah, parting the waters and letting his people go free, in reality he is just another tax and tax and tax and spend democrat, take from the producers and give to the non producers. Now that the non taxpayers outnumber and outvote the taxpayers, bad things are gonna happen fast.

Me neither. But, millions of self loathing Whites either voted to assure the Orwellian Nightmare for their families or didn't even bother to Vote to stop it so it is what it is. We will adapt to being pitiful. North Koreans and Cubans did.

Obama administration code:

If 1 of 'their' generals (William Kip Ward) is taken down, then 2 white generals (Petraeus and Allen) will be taken down.

That's the way it works in the Obama regime.

1 black general= 2 white generals

The new Democrats are not just stupid enough to commit vote faud, they aren't even smart enough to hide it. 59 voting districts in one state, and not one Republican vote? Please. Only another Democrat would be stupid enough to believe that, and it happened time, and time again. That is fine, but don't then come and ask for respect for the President who stole his reelection. He did not earn our respect. Thankfully he cannot run for a third term.

Embarrassing that Obama's begging a Wall St. thug like Dimon, one of the bastards who trashed our economy, for help. Dimon should be warming a jail cell, not offering the President help or advice.

But Obama's always compromised too much with these people, that's one reason the recovery's gone so slow. He wants to be one of them, but will never be invited into the 'rich white guys only' country club...
