Analysis: Corporate America sweats as U.S. nears fiscal cliff

Sep 27, 2012 Full story: www.reuters.com 22
Top U.S. executives have less confidence in the business outlook now than at any time in the past three years - and a key reason is fear of gridlock in Washington over the fiscal deficit and tax policy.

The uncertainty, coupled with slowing demand in Asia and Europe, is forcing corporate leaders to postpone decisions on major investments and hiring, and hurting sales of everything from textbooks to telephone lines.

Hell yeah.

Don't we all ?

The gov't announced today that the 2nd QTR GDP growth was revised DOWNWARDS from 1.7% to 1.25%.

If we are in a recovery why are all the revisions downwards since the fall of 2010 ?

The Bush Recession ended in June of 2009.

When will the revisions be upwards ?

The companies that make up the broad Standard & Poor's 1500 index .15GSPC had $1 trillion in cash and equivalent assets on their books at the end of the second quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S data.

A study released on Monday by the National Association of Business Economics found that 45 percent of its members thought Congress should rely equally on tax increases and spending cuts to reduce the deficit, while just 9 percent were opposed to having any tax hikes aimed at cutting the deficit.

The reason for washington gridlock is that rethugs have focused solely on defeating obama instead of doing what is right for the country. Their actions are just short of outright treason!

One of those bills was to review regs affects on jobs passed 330-34 and tabled by Dirty Harry Reid, you may call that 3rd world so as to get Soros ATTA BOYS but I don't.

Under Barack, this past week alone 1,200 Virginians working in the coal industry lost their jobs

http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/09/bring_...

EVEN WHILE BARACK IS MAKING PROMISES and USING NICE WORDS ABOUT "ECONOMIC PATRIOTISM", job losses continue.

Romney is the ONLY CANDIDATE PERFECTLY SUITED to restoring America's wellbeing. He has a proven track record of building wealth for others and creating jobs, unlike Barack whose best moments are playing golf when he's not blaming Bush (still). This video is a must watch!

Send it around and tell others to do same.

The United States has slid from 3rd in ease of starting a new business to 13th in the world, trailing unlikely competitors like Rwanda and Macedonia.

America, as many warned, would become a third world country under Barack. He has succeeded.

I see.

Your brain is smoked, from too much extremist tripe.

You will be very unhappy over the next sixteen years. I urge you to stop reading and watching these poisonous programs, and deceitful web-sites you insist on polluting your mind with.

Get out, Fish, ride a bicycle, swim, ski, and walk, and look at the sky.

You are very sick, and have no idea of how sick you are.

This applies mostly to you --------> Get out, Fish, ride a bicycle, swim, ski, and walk, and look at the sky. You spam Topix with the most contrived articles showing up your clear and present bias. LOL.

You don't care, this we know. Anyone who votes for Barack in the face of his treachery DOES NOT CARE ABOUT HIS BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

And btw, you are certainly VERY SICK, and HAVE NO IDEA of how sick you are. It's not Barack who runs the WH. It is Valerie Jarrett, slum landlord to poor black Chicagoans born in 100% Islamic Iran, an American in name only. OBOTS ARE ALL BIZARRO LIKE BARACK. Put your hand to your heart and PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE DEVIL, THE WOLF IN YOUR SHEEP'S CLOTHING. Good. Karma will haunt you. It will HAUNT EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO VOTE FOR BARACK KNOWING THE HARM HE DOES TO THE COUNTRY AND AMERICANS.

Reality is not spam.

Neither is too much FOX, but that is like bad acid. Your rant is just plain goofy, Wall St runs both parties.

Have fun, going into that box, and voting for ROMNEY. You know better, yet you will vote your predjudices against your own self interest.

Sad.

But, if you read this article, yoyu will see it is not 'contrived.' It is addressing a new, scary situation. The refusal to compromise by the tea-bagger congress.

Without compromise, in a pluralistic society, there is failure to act, failure to govern. That is the danger, seen in this new class of congressman, to our nation.

One example is this:
"...Some 34 percent of U.S. CEOs plan to cut jobs in the United States over the next six months, up from 20 percent a quarter ago, according to a Business Roundtable survey released on Wednesday..."

That (34% over 20%) increase is a direct result of the tea-baggers.
The 20% they were planning is the fault of the whole congress; which should impose a tarriff on all imported manufactured goods.

YES IT IS SPAM. Your sources are not facts just surmises and speculations by propagandist. It's KOOL ADE and spin.

CEOs are cutting jobs for good reasons over the next 6 months because the economy is down.

This is spam because it's made up, no proof, garbage out of thin air. "That (34% over 20%) increase is a direct result of the tea-baggers."

Democrats dumb people down. You are the dumb helping politicians dumb your people down.

You have no credibility when you spam these articles. You are nothing but a shill and get your marching orders/articles from Barack, the biggest liar of them all.
