It’s a Slope, Not a Cliff

“There’s no possible way for a deal before the last possible moment”. If Boehner makes a deal before the last tick of the clock, his party will accuse him of leaving too much on the table, according to Bruce Bartlett in this calm, sensible conversation with Yves Smith on Bill Moyer’s show. Spoiler: Bartlett and Smith both say that it is in the best interests of the ordinary person to just go ahead over the slope/cliff and then start talking about reform.

The link is to Ms. Smith’s blog, which I read and recommend. Here, she claims Obama resides on the political spectrum to the right of both Eisenhower and Nixon.
