I am becoming more and more fond of going over the fiscal cliff.

As I see it, the biggest threat to the US is that we never really do anything.

I totally agree. Let it happen. There is nothing we need to do about this (unless maybe we do MORE that will be occurring automatically). Taxes go back to 1990s levels...fine. They weren't onerous back then, they won't be now. Cut spending? Yeah, we need to do that too.

I'm not even convinced it will cause a recession.
