    A scramble then consensus.

    I don't think it's happening though.

    The government could collapse, it wouldn't be able to support entitlements, defense, public sector jobs, it could default on the debt. The dollar could inflate and then collapse, we'll all be poorer. All that could happen to one degree or another. And I don't see our government capable of doing anything to stop it.

    But your question concerns going over the cliff, iow, not taxing and cutting.
