Going of the fiscal cliff is not the best idea.  But, if the Republicans keep digging in their heels, it might be the best available idea.

Going off the cliff will establish a new baseline, from which negotiations should be easier.

  1. Why are Republicans considered to be digging in their heels on taxes (which is true), but nobody talks about the Democrats digging in their heels on spending?

    I have yet to see a single proposed spending cut as part of any deal for avoiding the fiscal cliff.
