About This File

The fiscal cliff is still pretty much the only game in town in Washington, but that doesn't mean that the nature of the debate is static. This week's file updates the traditional fiscal cliff file that we have been following and brings you an entirely new scenario based on the fiscal cliff. Find out more about the file, the authors, and the table of contents below.

 

Things are moving very quickly in the fiscal cliff debate, and it is pretty easy to win that some sort of a deal is inevitable. This week's file brings you a DA to take advantage of that fact. This file says some type of deal is inevitable because the GOP is giving in on taxes. The debate has now shifted to entitlement reforms. This DA says Obama's capital will be key to fighting the GOP on that issue. The strategic utility of this DA is that you don't have to engage in the big fiscal cliff will/won't pass debate. You say that obviously they will reach some agreement. This DA gets into the details of those deals and shifts the discussion from taxes to entitlement reforms.

 

If you are more comfortable with the traditional fiscal cliff we bring you all the cards necessary for that debate and have included thorough AFF updates since negatives are still likely to read this scenario.
