Fiscal Cliff Doublespeak Duplicity
Both parties plan to erode and end America's social contract. Death by a 1,000 cuts is planned.

As issue is destroying social America, increasing the unprecedented wealth disparity, punishing ordinary households, impoverishing growing millions, and providing limitless funding for militarism, imperial wars, and corporate favorites.
Also ahead is toughening police state harshness against non-believers. America's at the precipice of full-blown tyranny.
Washington's fiscal cliff debate is doublespeak deception. Republicans and Democrats share guilt. Language refers to expiring yearend tax breaks and unemployment benefits.
It's also about sequestered/largely discretionary yearend $1.2 trillion in cuts coming to address them. Republicans and Democrats share guilt.
Backroom double-dealing planned them months ago. The criminal class in Washington is bipartisan. It's perhaps worse now than ever.
