A Quick Reminder

As we follow the twists and turns of the road to the fiscal cliff staircase, let’s not lose sight of the fact that this is a totally unnecessary Congress-created and Obama-sanctioned artificial drama.  They chose to extend the Bush tax cuts to 12/31/12.  They chose to have the huge and arbitrary spending cuts kick in if a deficit deal wasn’t reached by that exact same date.

They didn’t just make this bed, people, they added a dust ruffle and shams.  Let them spend the holidays lying in it.

To me, the most important, the most inexcusable part of this December dance of disfunction is how we got here.

Neither party can look at the cliff and say to the other, “You didn’t build that.”
