As the clock ticks and we watch the various players move their pieces into place, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that Republicans are in a no-win situation.

1. It’s a Trap!
2. No Meaningful Spending Cuts Will Happen Between Now and Christmas
3. Going Over the Cliff Gives Republicans Time to Fix Their Messaging
4. Real Spending Reform Can Happen Next Year
5. A Tax-Hike Without Meaningful Spending Cuts Is Meaningless
