View Diary: Not that anyone should care - My 2 Cents on the Fiscal Cliff (3 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  The Fiscal Cliff is not about the deficit (0+ / 0-)

    ...or about reducing it.

    It is about the unfortunate timing of three deadlines falling inconveniently at the same time -- all three based on prior legislation that is not going to change.

    Your President is extremely concerned about stretching those deadlines this way and that to avoid them hitting all at the same time -- which would destabilize the US economy.

    That is all there is to it. Trust me. Everything else is noise.
