GOP Offers to Throw Middle Class, Elderly Over the “Fiscal Cliff”

Richard Eskow writes for Campaign for America’s Future: “The Republican Party has a message for the American people: Meet the new deal, same as the old deal. The GOP ‘counter-offer’ to the President’s fiscal-cliff proposal isn’t really an offer at all: It’s a rehash of the tired and extremist right-wing economic warfare which the American people soundly rejected last month.”
