Once again, I have to write about the insanity of the GOP's position in regards to the fiscal cliff.
The GOP has no logical choice but to let the tax cuts for the top 2% of income distribution expire. It is as clear as day as if they do not then taxes go up for everybody and, in addition, they have to deal with sequestration.
If the GOP does nothing they lose 2 battles (spending cuts for the military will be enacted and the taxes for the top 2% will go up) while the Democrats lose only 1 (taxes for 98% of income earners). What are the GOP strategists thinking?
What are the reasons the GOP keeps fighting a losing battle? If they keep fighting for nothing will the GOP continue to be considered a viable national political partner?
I would think not, but the GOP has an agenda that eludes me. Completely.
