Nope. Repubs have the power to avert it, if they took their mouths off of the cocks of the rich, but they won't, cuz they're good bitches. When you lose seats in every chamber in an election, it means the country isn't behind you. Polling has shown a big majority of American's in favor of taxing the rich...it's not even close. But it seems like that rich dick is just too good to let go of! hahahahaha!
Obama is the driver -- he's the one taking America off the cliff. NEVER EVER FORGET THIS.
DEMOCRATS drove America off the cliff. Remember that next election...
That statement is so erroneous, I don't even know where to start. To begin with, GWB took us to the fiscal cliff.
Even most conservative pundits agree with this. It was his tax and fiscal policies that set this up to happen.
Also, Obama can't force congress to act. He also doesn't have to give in to every tantrum and whim they may have. They're adults, and can gauge what they do and do not want to negotiate. The key word here is NEGOTIATE. When you LOSE as bad as the Repugs did, your bargaining position is weaker. The nation isn't with you. Polling shows huge margins of Americans favor taxing the rich at a higher rate. This includes republican voters.
Currently, Obama is touring the country, taking up precious media time to frame this thing as a Repug hostage taking, and it's working--presumably because it's the truth. We will see in the next election, just as we did with this one.
This country has changed, and some don't want to see it.
Center-Left from now on! The "traditional voter" is taking his last gasps!
Really, what about Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution?
The President can do nothing tax or spending wise without the backing of Congress. Congress is where the problem with the economy lies. CONGRESS is to blame for this mess, Congressmen and women do not do their job and this is the result.
The electorate are representative of a uninformed, failed, race and sex baiting, entitlement centric society, that is uneducated, dependent, and lazy.
Look at where Obama won in landslide numbers, these districts are also electing Representatives and Senators. Do you really think that members of Congress are any better educated, have higher moral values, and truly understand their responsibility better than those who vote for them?
Congress is the problem and until We the People demand term limits and truly educate ourselves on who we are electing and WHY, this will only get worse. There is no doubt that Obama is far worse than Bush ever could be, because Congress capitulates, and what they don't do, Obama couldn't care less. The next President will be worse than Obama because members of Congress only pretend to care.
Congress could have stopped Bush if they really wanted to, but they didn't. I know, Bush lied, well it's their job to discern the truth not blindly fall in line like lemmings
I cringe every time I hear one of them say "The American People" deserve this, or that...
I could go on and on about the problem of Congress and how Bush and Obama exploit these clowns...I won't because frankly, it's like trying to explain sound to the deaf.
No one is listening because what is being said requires too much from a Godless society.. Sacrifice and that is what the media, our public education, and our government say "The American People" shouldn't have to do, sacrifice.
Obamacare will not save even one person from the high cost of healthcare, and what it will do to Uncle Sam, I expect that Obamacare has a death panel provision that will kick in and help him understand that it's time to get his affairs in order, say goodbye to his loved ones, and kiss his ass goodbye.
