Fiscal cliff is a made up emergency created by corrupt politicians to avoid taking necessary actions and blame someone else

Let’s think for a moment: what is a fiscal cliff?
This automatic tax increase is simply a dirty deal made by corrupt politicians in power just a year ago or so. We did not have this fiscal cliff automatic increases two years ago.
Congress has the power of the purse. It can simply deny spending on redundant programs and waste.
For example, instead of raising taxes it can allocate to Obama the same expenditure, as it allocated to Bush or Clinton, not a cent more.
The congress has an ability and duty to spend as much as the treasury takes in revenues and not a cent more.
The Congress has power to rescind the “fiscal cliff” inside unconstitutional backroom deal made by both parties.
The Congress has no obligation to spend more than there are revenues and it has no obligation to raise taxes.
The Congress can defund all of the redundant programs.
For example, if the treasury has no funds for Obamacare, the Congress can de-fund it, not allocate the funds on the new program that it has no money to run. Obama care is not a constitutional requirement.
Each state has a department of Education. The Congress can de-fund all Federal programs related to education, which duplicate similar state programs.
The Congress can pass a bill seeking to re-negotiate WTO GATT and NAFTA or rescind part of these contracts or rescind them in entirety and submit such bills to the President, as those programs caused this nation 5 trillion dollars of deficit. WTO-GATT is just a contract and as any contract it can be rescinded, if such contract causes trillions of dollars of deficit and 700 billion in early interest payments for the nation.
Please, write to your Congressmen, demand that they use their power to de-fund and stop intimidating and harassing citizens with a made up fiscal cliff.
We live within our means and so should Congress and the executive branch. If they are incapable of doing so, they have a choice, they can resign.
