If these tax rates that will result if the "cliff" happens are bad, why did Democrats raise them to those levels in the first place, even on the middle class? We would just go back to the tax rates under Clinton. You do remember that Clinton and his Democrat Congress raised tax rates to those levels right after he took office in 1993, don't you? Or did you conveniently forget?

"If these tax rates that will result if the "cliff" happens are bad, why did Democrats raise them to those levels in the first place, even on the middle class?" .... why is it that so many conservatives lack understanding? It's bad for the middle class now because the middle class has taken the brunt of the economic hit during this financial crisis. In 1993 the economy was doing well so the tax rates then didn't hurt the middle class.

FISCAL CLIFF a term coined by a tax sheet cabinet member.How can this problem be fixed by the people who created the problem? With more money from the sheep of this country and the backing of the incompetent prejudiced media.

Only a 10% cut for military and other services?? Many private businesses have cut 10%-15% during the recession and come out leaner and meaner than ever. Government spending never takes a cut and as a result is fatter and more bloated than ever.
