    Exclamation Fiscal Cliff - Repiblicans are more to blame than Obama - 53% vs. 29%

    As the president and congressional leaders begin negotiations to avoid the “fiscal cliff” deadline at the end of the year, there is widespread public concern about the possible financial consequences. More say the automatic spending cuts and tax increases scheduled to take effect in January would have a major effect on the U.S. economy than on their own finances. But nearly identical majorities say the effect of the changes would be mostly negative for the economy (62%) and their personal financial situation (60%).

    The public is skeptical that President Obama and congressional Republicans will reach an agreement by the end of the year to avoid the fiscal cliff. About half (51%) say the two sides will not reach an agreement, while just 38% say they will. If no deal is reached, more say that congressional Republicans would be more to blame than President Obama (53% vs. 29%).

    The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press and The Washington Post, conducted Nov. 8-11, 2012, among 1,000 adults finds sharp partisan divisions over prospects for a deal to avoid the fiscal measures from automatically taking effect.

    Republicans are particularly skeptical: By a 66%-25% margin more think an agreement will not be reached. By comparison, Democrats are about as likely to expect a deal to be made (47%), as not (40%). Among independents, 51% do not think President Obama and Republicans and in Congress will come to an agreement, while 37% think this will happen.

    Since everyone is not happy about the fiscal cliff budget, because it includes cuts in their share of the graft pie, or causes tax rate on their elitist society to go up, therefore..

    IT MUST BE THE BEST SOLUTION.

    Looks like you fell for a sensationalist headline without reading the article for it doesn't support that, it says instead "If no deal is reached, more say that congressional Republicans would be more to blame than President Obama (53% vs. 29%)." IOW, the public in some political poll might blame Reps more than Dems.

    He was the first black president you know. Not sure why, but thats what Rush Limbaugh says, and so it must be somewhere near the truth.. in whatever galaxy Rush lives in.

    Edit: actually, that was Toni Morrison, a black woman, who first coined that term, and Rush then used that to great advantage to make it seem a negative quality.

    Yes I did read it and "I" got the most important part out of it ... Republicans don't have the upper-hand anymore. They Fucked up when they turned down Obama's deal two years ago ... now they are going to take it up the five hole.

    You've known my opinion for more than a week ... you even put me in the Hole for it, so how couldn't know.

    There is NO Fiscal Cliff ... and thus, there's no argument to be made.

    The Tech Boom never stopped ... ever hear of a Smart Device or Social Networking or Intelligent Navigation?

    Without the technological breakthroughs and hardware infrastructure that preceded ... we'd be in the dark-ages.

    If you don't believe me ... try contacting Staten Island
