  1. Politico is reporting that the current deal taking shape is exactly what I predicted… tax increases now, spending cuts to be phased in sometime after 2020… i.e. Never.

  2. There is merit to what Jim Geraghty at NRO is saying here.

    At this moment, Republicans in Congress need to examine which presents a more dire threat to the country:
    A) A double-dip recession driven by the sequester and the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, or

    B) the public’s belief (verified through polling) that our giant debt, our ticking time bomb of entitlements, and our gargantuan government can be solved by “asking the richest Americans to pay a little bit more,” as Obama insists.

    Option A is terrible, but Option B is the giant locked door blocking all of the real solutions.

    So if we must have tax hikes, let the tax cuts for every income level expire and let everyone of every income level pay higher taxes. Destroy the illusion among so many voters that they can get all the government they want without paying more in taxes.

  3. I agree 100% with Jim. Let’s strap on our man pants and go over the cliff.
