The fiscal cliff is just a dog and pony show for the people. No deal will be reached because a deal means real cuts in spending and tax hikes. None of the rats in DC want to be responsible for either. Re-election is all they care about.
The truth is...a "DEAL" was reached last time we raised the debt ceiling. The rats on both sides of the aisle crafted and agreed to the deal. Now the deal is about to cause prudent cuts to the budget and some people will lose. The rats don't want to be responsible for that either. The Fiscal Cliff is just a show for the morons in this country so they can't figure out who to blame. The rats in DC need to have a conversation with the people of this country to explain that either the people are willing to pay for all that DC provides or some things are going to go away. It's that simple. In a weeks time millions of people are about to lose their unemployment benefits. There is an article in this paper claiming "meals on wheels" will cease to exist in Collier county if we go over the cliff (none sense) due to federal cuts. I thought that was a charity? Cuts are coming and the fun is just getting started.
Austerity is a word I predicted would become commonly used in 2013 in America. So far I'm correct. I expect it to become even more common over the next 2 years.
