Nothing like getting ready in advance (i.e., they did NO PLANNING AT ALL, until now).
Everything done by the administration from this to the publishing of tax withholding tables has been based on the assumption that the REPUBLICANS will cave.
But the law is the law, and Obama should have followed it. The law says the defense cuts start Tuesday and taxes go up, starting Tuesday. They have flouted the law because they were so sure the the Republicans would cave...
They should be prosecuted just for that.
President Obama never ever had to compromise before. Why would he start now? Having that said, let’s jump the damn cliff now!
