Bungee Jumping Off the Fiscal Cliff
President Obama has proposed that America drop off the fiscal cliff, “just to see what it feels like.”
“As we saw with Hurricane Sandy, ordinary Americans pull together in a time of crisis. So I think we should let ordinary Americans be the bungee cord that will stop us short of the bottom of the fiscal cliff, and bring us rebounding back to the top — almost. Then we’ll fall again, but not as far, and rebound again, and then fall again, and rebound again …. Then we’ll dangle for a while, and hope that someone will haul us back up.
Y’know, that isn’t such a great metaphor. Forget I said it.”
