This is not what our nation needs – especially not right now, when our government already spends so much over and beyond what they bring in every year, and the economy is still extremely stagnant.
But despite the blame game that has been the entire Fiscal Cliff drama, the simple, unadulterated truth is that the Fiscal Cliff, and the resulting 11th-hour deal is a direct result of the massive failure in leadership of President Obama and Harry Reid. While the sequestration aspect was an attempt by the GOP to force Democrats into cutting spending, if Obama and Reid truly gave a damn about America’s future, they would have taken a break from campaigning six or seven months ago and ironed out a deal then. But that wasn’t in the Democrats’ best interests politically, so instead the media buried any mention of the Fiscal Cliff until after the election, and the Democrats purposely put off a resolution until the very last second so they could engage in their blame-game. The election was two months ago, yet Barack Obama still has not stopped campaigning.
The Democrats have made it perfectly clear that they are willing to do extreme harm to our nation if it is in their own political self-interest.
