18 months ago congress passed a bill that would have devastated the US economy with drastic spending cuts and tax increases. It was only meant as a carrot to get the do nothing congress to do something. Every one knew that those policies would never be implemented. Now when congress finally passes a bill to rescind the previous one, without doing anything to address the real issues of debt, deficits and taxes we're all suppose to believe that something actually happened to avert a disaster. 3 card monte is a legislative gimmick and the media went along for the ride. You can take the red pill or the blue one. You can see how deep the rabbit hole goes or you can be a copper-top #$%$ the rest of your life. Unbelievable.
fiscal cliff will never end, with 50-100 trillion in unfunded liabilities, this story will be around for the next 20 years like the war on drugs or middle east violence. A problem that simply can't be solved by washington politicians. The problem can only be solved by godzilla.
