Both sides agree that taxes on the middle class should not go up.Keeping my fingers crossed that the fiscal cliff is resolved for everyone.Speaking for me and my husband,we cant afford a big rise in taxes.This will have major repercussions...
Dec 10 (Reuters)- Some money managers can't leave 2012 behind - even if they want to.
That's because President Barack Obama and Congressional Republicans remain locked in negotiations over avoiding the "fiscal cliff" - a package of nearly $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts that, should they take effect as scheduled in 2013, could send the U.S. economy into a recession.
Not looking forward to 2013 if something isnt done...
Both sides agree that the top 2% should pay more.
Both sides agree that there should be some (more) spending cuts.
The only thing both sides don't agree on is screwing around with medicare and defense spending cuts.
The President shouldn't back up an inch. 4 years of eating crap from these republicans who have used every dirty name and dirty tactic against his administration has finally cornered themselves. And it was indeed themselves who did it.
The President has no fingerprints on the sequester package. That was all Congress's doings. The President wasn't in the negotiations, nor did he sign anything.
Boehner will cave.
