Geithner: 'Absolutely' willing to go off the fiscal cliff
[link to www.politico.com]

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said Wednesday that the Obama administration was prepared to dive off the fiscal cliff if Republicans do not agree to raise tax rates on upper income brackets.

Geithner was asked on CNBC: "When it comes to raising taxes on the wealthy, those making more than $250,000 — if Republicans do not agree to that, is the administration prepared to go over the fiscal cliff?"

"Oh, absolutely," Geithner replied. "There's no prospect in an agreement that doesn't involve the rates going up on the top 2 percent of the wealthiest."

"The size of the problem in some sense is so large it can't be solved without rates going up," Geithner said about the country's fiscal challenges. "I think there's a broad recognition of that reality now."

 Quoting: Uke


The Republicans are going to cave.

This will allow Obama to claim that Bush's tax cuts caused the last 4 years of recession. This will be placed into school text books.

And no tax reduction will ever take place again, because "reductions in taxes cause recessions".

Obama's goal is to destroy the Republican Party's primary remaining party plank: Reducing taxes increases prosperity.

Diving off the fiscal cliff was the plan all along to bring in the one world government. They are just making it look like ineptness, and stupidity to garner forgiveness by the American sheeple, and have people come to government for help after the fact.

Yes.
But I'm afraid it's a chimera, a phantasm, that the deal is already done and this is all just theater.

I don't think there is an actual cliff. Just a campfire story about the guy with the hook named Cliff.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29210781


The plan is to make the current Republican leadership look like fools for listening to the conservatives, thereby killing the Republican party, conservatives, and any chance of any future tax cuts in one fell swoop.
