In a way, it is more like the austerity we see in Europe.
Liberals are just trying to paint any cuts to spending as doom and gloom.

The Fiscal Cliff is the best deal we’re going to get. I say we drive off.
The other thing we should do is decline to raise the debt ceiling. Let’s just get off of this deficit spending ride. The sooner the better.

(ELIMINATE PERVERSE INCENTIVES)
House and Senate Republicans need to stand their ground if the Democrats will not negotiate in good faith.
Not only over the “fiscal cliff,” but also no further increases in the debt limit.
Unnecessary, painful, very painful, but at least good first moves in the right direction.

But the situation the nation faces is not like that. The so-called "fiscal cliff," in fact, would be more accurately described as a "gradual fiscal slope." Though that admittedly doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
Nothing "gradual" about the landing to come...what difference if you hit ground at 80 vs. 120?

Even though this will be a NEW recession, will it STILL be Bush’s Fault?
