  • Republicans won't be the only ones blamed if we go over the fiscal cliff

    We are accustomed to the opprobrium columnist Thomas Schaller heaps on all things Republican. However, his most recent rant on who's to blame for the fiscal cliff deserves further reflection ("Crisis they created catches up with Republicans," Dec. 12)....
  • A blueprint for a fiscal deal

    It seems to me that House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama can close the deal and avoid the "fiscal cliff" ("Progress elusive in fiscal talks," Dec. 14). The Republicans need to agree to increase the taxes for the wealthiest 2 percent while...
  • On fiscal cliff, Van Hollen only throws stones

    I find Rep. Chris Van Hollen's comments very ironic about Rep. John Boehner wanting to delay on the fiscal cliff until he is re-elected Speaker of the House ("Conservatives battle Obama," Dec. 13). Isn't this the same Rep. Van Hollen, the super-...

    As official Washington nervously ponders the approaching fiscal cliff and the potential economic chaos it entails, President Barack Obama faces a precipice of his own in the challenge of making use of his re-election victory. Unless he emerges from...
  • Where are the real statesmen when you need them?

    Why isn't President Obama taking a lead role in resolving the fiscal issues at hand? He keeps harping on taxing the rich — which would solve about 5 percent of the problem — but not proposing any other concrete solutions ("Bucking the pledge,"...
  • The sequester stand-off

    The sequester stand-off
    Is this really the best anyone in Washington can do to avert sequestration? President Barack Obama's call for delaying the automatic spending cuts past the March 1 deadline would seem reasonable enough, except he hasn't really offered up a specific plan...

    Brain-lock inside the Beltway
    It's at times like this I'm ashamed to admit I live inside the Beltway. Well, that's probably not specific enough since I'm usually ashamed to admit I live inside the Beltway. Still, the second you try to explain the stupidity of this "fiscal cliff"...
