We’re about to go off the fiscal cliff. Don’t be fooled by the disguise.
We’re just 3 weeks shy of it, give or take a couple days and, taking the chance that the Mayan calendar is wrong.
The Emperor made HIS proposal, absurd as it was, to demand twice the amount of tax hikes he campaigned on, the dictatorial authority to raise the debt ceiling without any need to seek congressional approval and put off any hint of spending cuts until an unnamed point in time that we all know will never come.
The republicans countered with their proposal that produces the same amount of revenue the Emperor campaigned on by closing loopholes and NOT raising ANYONE’S taxes and included entitlement reform that would cut spending AND sustain those entitlements for future generations.
It’s now crystal clear, as we have been saying, that the Emperor has NO interest whatsoever in adding revenues.
Obama simply wants to stick it to the so-called “rich.”
He wants to jack up their taxes.
This has nothing whatsoever to do with paying any sort of “fair share” and EVERYTHING to do with punishing success.
I’m about to explain this to socialists in a nutshell and I ain’t gonna be polite about it.
