    This really needs more attention.  There are people going to be hurt by the cliff, and lots of people just calling it a "curb", etc., isn't that helpful, IMHO.  It may very well be a curb...it may not.  But my confidence in our government to do anything to cure any ills from a "curb", after last night, convinces me more that we are all going to have to live with a cliff of austerity for at least the next several months.

    Cake or DEATH? Oh, I'll have cake, please.

      of the "cliff"...even if UE benefits are extended, they don't go on forever...I think they end after 99 weeks regardless, don't they? As long as we continue to buy the right wing spin and keep shoveling wealth out of the middle class toward the rich, poor/working people will be falling off "cliffs" every day.
