I don’t buy into the whole premise. They’ve had over a year to work on this.
“Fiscal cliff”, “Sequestor”. How about calling it what it is. The US is bankrupt due to three generations of consuming more than is produced and subsidizing the non productive. Reckoning cannot be forever postponed.
The idea originated with the White House. It was sold to Doktor Reid and passed by Congress. Now the chickens have come home to roost.
Hmmm...Obama started a game of "Chicken"...and lost.
Want to bet?
Congress and the President will once again treat the symptoms and let the cancer grow. We are far from the end of the "can kicking". They will continue to kick the can until the economy completely tanks.
There will be no profiles in courage here.
From the same Macbeth scene:
When will Congress deal with spending?
“Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow . . . “
“. . . and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty [debt]. . .”
Obama is “a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage.”
And the dire warning of the sequester cuts to those massive increases already made, and to those massive spending increases to come, is truly “a tale told by an idiot.”
