And why not?! They would get their goal of increasing taxes, and get to blame someone else for that. Win win. Lost in all the fiscal cliff negotiations are actual spending cuts. That press conference tuis afternoon proved that this is all about hyper-partisan politics for Teh One. And now it is rumored that there is a tax increase deal that will accompany a spending increase, with spending cuts to be discussed sometime in the future. Good Allah.
Have a great New Year, everyone. Be safe. Here’s to a better 2013!
