One thing is certain, and that is the cliff. Talk about pain, going over the cliff is not going to be painless. I will again say am against tax increases. The problem in D.C., on this issue, remains constant. Taxes are raised, or jobs get created and revenues increase, yet spending is never cut to slow the debt. D.C. always spends more than D.C. takes in. The last President to address this issue, President Reagan thought he had a deal to decrease the debt. At that time the debt was five trillion. The democRATS Tip O’Neil shook hands, on the deal, with President Reagan and lied and increased the debt. The non-answer to this issue has caused pain. More pain is probably coming because of O’Neil not honoring the deal President Reagan and O’Neil shook hand on. Where this goes is any-ones guess. I still blame democRATS.

Yes, the key to all of this is even if we America loving patriots that actually pay taxes and foot the collective bill for America accede to allowing taxes to be raised on us even more egregiously, all in the name of reducing debt, the Democrats will NEVER reduce entitlement spending; they will most certainly increase it like Obama did in 2011 by adding $1.03 Trillion in entitlement spending over 83 programs.
Like I said, I’d rather see it all burn than to continue this pointless allegiance to what this country used to be, all in the name of ‘fairness’.
