Well I absolutely agree that near term spending can not be cut and we need to delay the implementation of the Bush tax cuts. If we don't deal with the fiscal cliff we are heading for a double dip.
Maybe things will get so bad that another spending stimulus will be required. Maybe one that actually has a pay off this time in terms of infrastructure instead of the last dumb ass plan that invested in **** like education that at best has a return way down the road.
I think we can and should address both the structural problem and the short term need to give the economy a boost. If we can just address the fiscal cliff before the election that will be a start.
