'Fiscal cliff' deal: What will it mean for you?

Jan 2, 2013 Full story: www.csmonitor.com 8

Some aspects of the fiscal cliff deal are well-known such as rising tax rates on the rich. But, actually, everyone will be paying more taxes. Here's a look at the deal's details.

Your taxes are probably going up, but not as much as they would have without "fiscal cliff" deal.

That's the short summary of what's in store for US households now that a fiscal bargain between the White House and Congress has been reached. The welcome news for personal pocketbooks is that most Americans will see no change in their income-tax rates.

Well one thing happened for sure. The right has now admitted that tax cuts cost money...and must be paid for.

This was momumental change in GOP philosophy who have always used the excuse that tax cuts are free cause they pay for themselves.

Even topix repugs are viewing the tax credits in the current bill as "spending".

You're desire to be anti-Obama on everything has walked you into a corner, once again.

Tell us again please....that the tax credits were PBO spending again.

LOL...ya gotta love playing with the dense and fooling with the stupid.

It means Pres Obama has gotten the GOP to do something they haven't done since Bush Sr begged his repub Congress to do....vote to raise taxes.

And when Bush Sr did it, he was tossed out of Office the next election, they hated doing it so much.

But yes, President Obama has found a away to get even this right-wing radical incarnation of the GOP to do just that...raise revenues.

Amazing.

5 down, 360 to go......

At least it's a start.

The GOPasaur plan would have funded the govt for ZERO days and just put 100% of the spending on our national debt.
