fiscal cliff...

November 12, 2012

...from a conservative point of view. With the house under conservative control, and that's all they control, is it a bad thing to sit tight and take the plunge in January? Just curious as to thoughts. The only other option is to try to cockblock anything spending/tax related for the next two years and then maybe get voted out for being obstructionist. Seems it would be easier to let us go over the cliff and get instant results and work our way thru the mess that ensues. Kinda like removing the bandaid quickly than a death by a thousand cuts over the next two years.
