President Obama wants to go over the fiscal cliff
“After what’s happened this week, it’s hard to escape the conclusion that the President of the United States wants to go off the cliff,” a Senate Republican source told The Washington Examiner. The source suggested that, over the last couple weeks, Obama decided that the election gives him a mandate to go off the cliff rather than compromise with the Republicans on taxes and budget cuts.
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner reportedly knew that his offer was unacceptable. ” I didn’t expect you would like this,” Geithner told McConnell, per Breitbart News.
