The ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Failed. Kill It And Get Back to Work. – Richard Eskow

The so-called ‘fiscal cliff’ was never real. Congress and the President invented it during last year’s negotiations, apparently to persuade voters that unpopular budget measures were needed to avoid a crisis. With the collapse of John Boehner’s ‘Plan B,’ that gambit has failed. What now?

That’s easy: The moving finger of Washington, having writ, can unwrite.

The ‘fiscal cliff’ was never real. It was virtual reality. Now it’s time for our leaders to take off the goggles and get back to work.
