One common trick mainstream media is doing almost everyday recently is to phrase the title about anything related to fiscal cliff like this “Republicans are willing to let US go over fiscal cliff” or something like “if Republicans insist their opposition, the negotiation will fail”, “Republican is not willing to let the president’s proposal to pass to avoid fiscal cliff”
Right, like the only role Republicans need to do is to obey and budge. Wrong. Dead wrong.
Remember, just because someone opens their mouth to throw the weight to the counterpart, does not give him/her the right to be the “right side”.
Just because I put up a plan and send to you for passing of the plan and you oppose it, does not mean that my plan is a good plan, agree?
Democracy’s biggest strength, is that no one can push through their own agenda over everybody freely. They will always face opposition and challenges. Otherwise you are Mursi.
It is opposition’s responsibility to challenge the incumbent’s proposals and to keep things in check always. And just remember this is a negotiation, on equal ground.
EVERY PARTY HAS ITS ROLE SHOULD THIS THING FAILED.
