I just watched Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner on Meet the Press.

No matter WHAT anybody thinks about the Administration's proposal re avoiding the fiscal cliff, it is a proposal. Geither repeated his challenge to the Republicans a couple of times, saying effectively
"If you don't like OUR proposal, give us YOURS."

Kind of reminds me of buying a new car. Salesperson gives you a number, and you give him/her your number. Of course, you are always free to walk out of the dealership.

Let's hope that the Republicans decide to make an offer. If not, they will not be the only ones WALKING home.
