Michelle Malkin: We're Hearing the Same 'Recycled Rhetoric' About Bipartisanship in Washington
With the presidential election now decided, the focus in Washington now turns to the "fiscal cliff." Some economists worry that the combination of scheduled year-end tax increases and spending cuts could cause the U.S. economy to shrink again.
The issue once again raises the question of whether President Obama can work with the GOP-controlled House to come up with a solution. Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin, however, is skeptical about whether Obama is really willing to negotiate seriously with House Speaker John Boehner.
"We heard this recycled rhetoric from Obama about how 'we're not red states or blue states, we're the United States,' and a lot of the rhetoric we're hearing now is recycled as well," she said.
Malkin also pointed out that if the two sides end up in a stalemate, then Obama wins because the Bush-era tax cuts will expire automatically.
