    anything from anything. This is his last term and he has no scandal attached to his White House. So he will be leaving office unscathed. As for the folks who voted for the President (including me), well, tough luck/fate or it is Karma. The SS cuts are going to come, the stock market seems to like it and with pension funds attached to the market: markets are becoming the next TBTF entities (iirc the reason BP did not go bankrupt was that some corrupt fund managers is UK refused to dump the stock during the spill so that this can be used to limit the damages to the company).

    The volume in the stock markets needs to be reigned in: lets is get a transaction tax on quotes so we can at least be part of the pipe. But we cant muddle fiscal cliff discussions with financial regulations at this time? Can we
    start to talk about this some day inside the White House, because this is not a new idea anyway.
