Republicans won't compromise and will take country over the fiscal cliff

I constantly hear from conservatives that President Barack Obama and the Democrats won't compromise. Today, the Democrats have indicated they will compromise. They are willing to agree to cuts to social security.

And what about the Republicans? The Democrats want those making over $250,000.00 to pay taxes pursuant to the pre-Bush tax cut rates. Coupled with the above spending cuts, we are on the way to reducing the deficit. So are the Republicans willing to compromise? The simple answer is no.

And if the Republicans won't compromise, deep spending cuts and increases in taxes will take place at the end of the year. The possible result? Recession. The Republicans ignore the will of the people. It was Obama that won and the Democrats retained control of the Senate. When it's 2014, the people of the country must remember to throw out the Republicans.

Republicans will take America over the fiscal cliff.
