It is absolutely astonishing to me that anyone could think that raising federal taxes or removing exemptions will solve any part of the fiscal cliff that we approach mostly because the clowns in Washington could not do their job in the first place.

Will raising taxes stop the Fed from printing money? Will raising taxes or reducing exemptions curb our government's insatiable appetite to spend?

Our wonderful collection of states was never intended to be beholding to federal overlords in Washington. I personally don't fear the fiscal cliff, I just wish every one of those clowns in Washington is in the car when it goes over the edge.

My God, tens of trillions dollars in debt and they still have a job. They should all be fired.
