But relaxing draconian regulations and reducing the highest corporate tax rate on the entire planet in order to attract more jobs to US shores just cannot ever be in the deal, can it? Keep them out of work and miserable? That isn’t a fiscal cliff, then: it’s a fiscal abyss.

How about we put FULL approval of the XL Keystone pipeline in the mix? That’s a few thousand jobs!

But I read every day how great it is that tens of millions illegals from other countries have jobs here.

We’re sunk.

Well this is interesting.

Who can “live” on unemployment insurance benefits? The payments are paltry in most states. I weorked as a veteran’s representative at a state unemployment office for 12 years.

This is a classic, if gov bails out one, they are forced to bail out all. This is a lesson learned if we ever survive the recession. Working Americans do ask a good question if jobless bailouts are not approved, “Why does the gov react instantly to bailout banks to the tune of 700 billion, but hesitate when working man ask for a bailout to the tune of 60 billion? Working man is starting to figure it out, gov is for the rich and it spits on the rest”.
This recession is unlike any we faced post WW2, because the past behavior of gov is fueling class warfare. So does the behavior of the CEO’s. Dems do not need to egg the people, they merely are leveraging a bad situation to their political advantage. Old adage, when the middle class is sliding into poverty and become part of the poor, the Dems will gain politically. Look at the last Great Depression where FDR was able to be POTUS four terms despite bad economy. He was even very popular after his death into the 1970’s by the aging Great Depression generation. The GOP needs to understand this dynamics before screaming that everyone learn to be on their own, but have their reps in Congress react to the desires and whims of the corporations and Wall Street. The Tea Party wing gets it, but the establishment GOP does not. The other great GOP of the past also got it, he was Teddy Roosevelt.

The house should pass two bills ASAP. One make permanent the Bush tax cuts up to 250 thousand and the second make permanent the Bush tax cuts over 250. That would eliminate the add ons that the dems are going to insist on and it would take away a major talking point of Obama’s .

The Left has always been about "wish lists," and the more cloud-borne the better.

People need to understand how the generation of Americans who gave us our independence & written Constitution, handled situations involving legitimate human need. See Thomas Jefferson's account of how Welfare was handled in 1782, Constitutional Overview.

We need to better hone our ability to explain reality to others. We have to convince & convert, or our future will be very bleak, indeed. (See Whither American Conservatism.)

This whole fiscal cliff thing is a sham.

They’ve had all year to work on this - ever since the “debt ceiling” debate and the “supercommittee” malarkey.

Want to see the unemployment rate start coming down for real? Don’t extend unemployment benefits.

There’s lots of stuff expiring on the 31st. And the payments to the layabouts are on the list.

The House should pass a single bill to extend all the Bush tax cuts for year and then adjourn. If the president calls the House back into session, a quorum should sit on their hands until the New Year.

Those jobless benefits and the threat of a tax increase are all a smokescreen, what Zero really wants is the power to SPEND money without the Congress’s approval. What has that body of gutless wonders ever denied Zero?

I am certain Bonehead and Cantor will bend over and give Obama
whatever he wants. After all, they are all members of the DC Party,
the party of never ending spending and tax increases.
