Fiscal cliff real?

President Obama is loudly criticizing Republicans for their stand on the fiscal cliff. Is there really a fiscal cliff? If it is real — and so terrifying — why doesn't he compromise and extend lower tax rates to the rich?

Republicans have suggested he trim domestic spending and work toward a balanced budget. He doesn't want to hear that. His mission is to destroy the rich.

During the campaign, the Democrats claimed Romney would kill Medicare and cut Social Security. Those were lies, but enough people believed them to sway the vote. Scare tactics work.

If there is a fiscal cliff and America goes over it, everyone will suffer — the rich, the middle class and the poor. If I go over the cliff, I want to take as many moochers as I can with me. Now that would be fair.
