Budget cuts are still to be discussed.

Fwiw, I think its something that they got the republicans to approve any tax increases. I wish they had been across the board, but at least they agreed on something.

The cliff is an imaginary line that my 10 yr old understands. Congress is creating an administrative nightmare for payroll and allocation of funding etc.

So anything a Rep does its bad. Anything a dem does is good and any problem that the US is under is a minimized illusion?

So this cliff is a bunch of hooey then why is the media covering this and why is BOTH sides even back in dc to do anything?

If its not a dem/ rep thing, then why didn't we face a 'fiscal cliff' during the 7 times the debt ceiling was raised under Bush?

Its all just unnecessary political brinksmanship

So youre saying deficit spending is good when the economy is strong and bad when the economy is weak?

I suppose I never looked at it that way
