    Compared to the Grand Bargain that Obama has been offering of $2.50 in spending cuts –mainly from social programs– for every dollar of revenue increases, including “reforming” Social Security and Medicare while leaving the bloated military budget untouched, cliff diving doesn’t look so bad. The resulting across the board spending cuts would include everything, even the military machine and subsidies to the oil companies. The politcal parties would then be forced to demonstrate their commitment to a just society by restoring cuts to essential social programs and voters could decide who is screwing them and who is not.

    The fact that the vampire squid of Wall Street don’t want to go over the fiscal cliff means we probably should. These crooks aren’t exactly known for their social conscience.
