Sure i do. But with people like you, if I present what it is you nitpick at wording in an attempt to throw it off topic. Be the adult here and explain it to everyone.



people like me? hahahahah.

Any deal, IMO, just delays the inevitable placing bets that the economy will rebound eventually and turn receipts upward. But as you just said, the math doesn't work.

Why not just go over the cliff and deal with the ramifications of cuts. Corporate America has to deal with that...our government should have to deal with it. 10% minimum across the board....and that includes employees.

I think the only way they get something meaningful done is to do it during the lame duck session where many of the people are already leaving and don't have to worry about partisan politics.

I think they are really close to having something done.

Boehner and Obama were really, really close but they are stuck over the Bush tax cuts. Most of the cuts and other tax increases I believe have already been agreed upon but Republicans are reluctant to raise income tax, even on the wealthy. Obama wants to roll them back and the Republicans are refusing.

I really think that is the only thing holding back a deal and I think it will get done.

I will have to wait until I see the finished product before I have an opinion on it.

*sigh*

g5 why would you start a thread like this? Its a perfectly legitimate topic that I'm sure will dominate discussion on this board as the deadline comes closer- is your goal to make every thread you start resemble a troll thread?

Certainly didn't take but a couple posts in to make the bobber go under...

But we just had an election and the details exactly what entailed the fiscal cliff weren't really discussed in specifics. I was just wondering out of all the people here, without using Google, knew exactly what was going to happen.

Since you asked why, the short answer is that politicians who are up for reelection in a couple years arent interested in making the the economy bottom out

Alright, but just so you know it takes maybe 10 seconds to google a good summary on just about any topic
