Consequences

In the Further Thought of this post, I advocated making it clear to folks what their share of government costs and how much of their share is paid by others.

In this post, I suggested that Republicans get out-of-the-way of Democrats and let them push through their fiscal cliff fixes, but make it clear that they are only doing so because that appears to be what the American people want based on the election results. If the American people want a different result, they need to vote for different people.

Mario Rizzo appears to agree with my sentiments, as he writes on his blog in this post why he supports increasing taxes on the middle class:

Because the only way to curb spending in the long run is to make as large a number of Americans as possible truly feel the consequences of the expenditures they appear to desire.
