Really? That is all we hear about the so-called fiscal cliff. Just don't believe it - another ploy to play politics. The election is over. But they will not cut federal spending. They want to raise taxes $1.4 trillion, cut $400 billion (they just haven't told us what those cuts are) and do another $50 billion in stimulus money.
Just heard today that the state of Illinois has a $47 billion shortfall to its state pension plan. Are we the taxpayers going to bail out the pension plans in Illinois? Is that because our president has to help out his friends - maybe making good on his campaign promise to them?
So, he wants to raise taxes $1.4 trillion, $400 billion in mysterious cuts, and $50 billion in stimulus money. Try to figure out that math.
Sounds like "Little Red Riding Hood" going to grandma's house to be eaten by the "Big Bad Wolf."
The Big Bad Wolf (federal government) doesn't care about the basket for grandma such as jobs, cutting government spending, help for small business and, heaven forbid, cutting the federal deficit. Little Red Riding Hood and her future generations do not have a bright future; we all will be eaten by the Big Bad Wolf.
