"It would be much better for fiscal policy makers to simply remove the cliff," writes Strategas, noting negative economic growth typically brings with it a drop in the S&P of about 30%. Negative economic growth? It's sure to come. David Kotok reminds the hit to households from the tax increases will be 5-7%.

    Wouldn't simply removing the financial cliff, rather than doing something constructive, show that there is no determination to solve the debt problem and cause an even greater economic crisis that the cliff?

    But fewer and fewer households are paying taxes so the impact won't be wide spread. Yeah, right.
