Top Five Reasons Republicans Should Take Us Over the Fiscal Cliff

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. They’re ether going to have to cave and agree to a tax increase without meaningful spending cuts or take the blame for going over the fiscal cliff. Here are five reasons why going over the cliff is by far the best option.

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

        I’m hoping we go over the cliff and things get really bad . . . maybe then we can end the Monopoly in Washington and kill entitlements.

    Let’s show the World obamas policy failures. Walk away, cut the money off and hold on tight. We are screwed either way, so obama, bring it on, lets see what you got! Republicans should not walk away, RUN! DON’T GIVE IN. YOU CAN’T FIX IT BY GIVING IN…..obama wants to blame Republicans and wants to fall off the cliff. He gets his spending money from ALL OF US! He just wants to say Republicans did it…
