If I Were Obama

If I were President, I wouldn’t give away anything in exchange for higher taxes on the top 2%.  Why negotiate on something that will just happen all by itself in a month?

And keep tax withholding on those making less than $250,000 the same as of 1/1/13, so that paychecks don’t shrink and consumer spending falls.

The GOP are at an enormous disadvantage here.  Any deal needs to reflect that, not just because Obama won, but because of the way Congress set these big spending cuts and tax increases to take effect simultaneously.

Cliff, shmiff.
