    Yep. Borrow and spend our way to properity! Taxation is not popular and gov't spending is popular (polls have proven this). Imagine if the typical US family was given the option to borrow/spend as much as they wished, to raise their own credit limits and give the banks more "cash" too?

    I wish the GOP would do what Rand Paul suggested. Just vote present for every single economic issue that comes across the docket. Don't fight for anything, don't put up a big show only to capitulate later, just go with the Dem agenda. By 2014ish, we'd see which ideology works.

    Well, that would be illegal. Hey, you can't do that!

    certainly not the perfect bill, and neither side is happy, but at least it protects from tax hikes on the people that can least afford it.

    Obama won the election the Republicans should have voted present. Let Obama and the left have everthing they want. A massive government with its population of dependent sheeple. Trillions upon trillions of debt with no way out. Thats right obstain from making decissions like Barry did when he was in congress.

    I would prefer working together in a reasonable manner from both sides no matter who is in power.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You seem to have forgoten the payroll tax. As a middle class man I can expect a reduction in take home pay.

    As would I but that has been proven to be beyond accomplishing by both sides.

    Just curious... do you actually think Obama is the devil as your signature implies? Out to destroy America and all?

    Reasonable is not in obama';s vocabulary.

    Did you know that one of the things that boy wanted to avoid the fiscal cliff was unilateral control over the debt ceiling?
