If no deal is reached

Automatic cuts kick in. This includes DEEP cuts to the Defense Department.

That is why neo-cons are so 'concerned' about the fiscal cliff. They couldn't give a rat's ass about raising taxes, other cuts, or a balanced budget.

They are just worried they can't fund another war with the defense cuts.

This is why some commentators are so worried while others seem not to really care one way or another.

I'd rather we do go over the cliff. Kudos to the non-leadership Republicans in the house who also seem to understand this.

Go over the cliff, let the deep cuts in spending happen. Then adjust the taxes. Sounds like a damn good plan to me, helluva lot better than Boehner & Cantor's neo-con crap plan.
