Both parties are holding the citizens of the United States hostage. They are ****ing us over. In fact, the Fiscal Cliff is just another crisis created by the powers that be. It could have been avoided long ago. Long ago. Both parties are up to their necks in complicity and guess what? American continue to vote the same bastards and the same parties back in office!
The only reason Washington may come to some SHORT TERM agreement is because China has much more power in Washington than Americans have - because China owns much of America - and China has made it clear to Washington that they had damned well stop ****ing around with China's money. And so both parties are compelled to find a short term compromise.

The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
taxes were increased on the rich....spending wasn't addressed at all...the unemployed got benefits extended.. and the death tax was increased... among other Democrat demands.
there is no reason for any Democrat or liberal to be unhappy with the bill... their entire fiscal agenda was fulfilled,with the exception of cutting defense spending and increasing entitlements.( those are supposed to happen in the coming days.)
we hit that ceiling, yet again, yesterday....16.3 trillion.... no more borrowing until the limit is increased ( which Obama is supporting once again )
the treasury is going to free up enough to keep going for the next 2 months.
one day i hope to see someone say " no more" and stop the uncontrolled spending and borrowing... i'd also like to see a unicorn... I have a better shot at the unicorn than i do with seeing spending brought under control.

"It starts with the money. The United States has spent too much of tomorrow today — to the point where we’ve run out of tomorrow; fiscally, our days are numbered. Everyone understands that except delusional Obama supporters and low-information voters, which are, of course, two ways of describing the same group of people". Mark Steyn
