Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, another presidential proxy, met with Republicans to put on the table the furthest thing from a serious solution to the impending “fiscal cliff.” This is both sad but unsurprising. Considering that President Obama has sent several budgets to Capital that didn’t garner a single vote from either side of the aisle is the unsurprising part. The sad part is that this country gave him the benefit of the doubt with a second term and he begins with the view that he is so clever he can dictate any terms he wants.

What that really means is how they will break their no new taxes pledge, provided real spending cuts are on the table. Then the discussion drills down on how much in new taxes they would support. When a Democrat is interviewed, such as Dick Durban, or Chris Van Hollen, the talk is about how much taxes have to increase. Nobody is talking about spending cuts in any meaningful way.
