The last fiscal cliff Obama caved on everything. All spending cuts and no revenue. We can't cut our way out of this mess and Obama is not going to just go along with the Republican plan like he did last time.
This is genuinely laughable. Obama proposes a centrist plan? Since when? 4:1 taxes to spending (if they happen) is a centrist proposal? No deal I have seen in the last decade (Bush included) resembles anything to what I would call a right-of-center solution.

BTW, you CAN cut your way out of this mess. In fact, it is the easiest and most sensible path. It'll hurt, but its necessary. Fact is you can't tax your way out. Simple math tells you that.
