Fiscal cliff: Worst-case scenarios
If Congress and the Obama administration can't come up with a deal to mitigate the effects of spending cuts and tax increases, the pain could be considerable.

Our Obama, who art in power, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in the USA, as it is in Cuba and the USSR. Give us this day our daily food stamps, and redistribute our wealth as we redistributed the wealth that came before us. Lead us not into prosperity, and deliver us from capitalism, free markets, entrepreneurship, hard work and personal responsibility. For thine is the kingdom of debts and entitlements and deficits and unfunded liabilities, forever and ever. Amen.
It's starting to not pay to be responsible. The American dream is gone. Wages will continue to drop and unemployment increase, along with poverty. Private sector is getting screwed.
still waiting on the zombie apokolypse
If we do go off the cliff doesn't that solve some problems?
We raise taxes on everyone and not just the people Obama hates.
We get some real spending cuts.
We destroy capital investment and reveal what Obama's policies will do quicker.
Unemployment will soar and so the democrats will have to face that consequence in 2014.
We nullify Obama's power to threaten us with more taxes and take away his byline "paying your fair share".
Obama would not dare to move forward with an immigration amnesty plan with so many unemployed.
I say go over the cliff, the amount my taxes will increase is worth it to see this fool of a president fail.
They are looking at Medicare. Long-term, it is our biggest problem. GOP is talking about age increases; Obama is talking about efficiency. We need them both. The GOP is talking about limiting the (COL) increases for S.S. (hopefully that is about the minimum). With these changes and our current environment, increase the debt ceiling and kick the rest down the road.
it's all been set up by Obama and his cronies so that the so called 'fiscal cliff' won't happen until well after the election. If americans didn't see that then they are dumb. The first dumb thing we did was elect Obama. The 2nd dumb thing we did was to re- elect Obama after we saw how slimely and crooked he really was. And no I didn't vote for him either time. In 2008 I voted republican and then in 2012 after I saw just how slimey the whole political process was I didn't vote.
But held responsible I think not, all of his constituents meaning the wealthy received their bail outs.
And the wealthy still are crying foul YOUR NOT RAISING MY TAXES! So! Who really are the entitled?
It surely is not the working men and women of this country who are just trying to make a living.
And still the wealthy are trying to take away what ever we have left can you say greed!
Look there should be term limits for those law makers in Washington basically for the longest time we have had taxation with out representation .
Can you say Government for sale if you have enough money you to can buy a law maker.
After reading this article it looks like going over the cliff may be whats best for America. We need to cut spending and raise taxes on everyone to get our debt under controll. I hope no "deal" is reached.
Lets go over the cliff time we all pay our fair share.We hired these bozzos to speak for us help keep our country on track.But all thay have done is spent our childrens future. Then we were stupid to hired then for another four years thinking we would get diffent results. Give me give me give me thats what the 47% that voted him back in wanted.Never once thinking about there kids.So If if we go of the cliff thay have to pay to. I'm ready lets jump.
tis is all dirty politics as usual.. those in power believe that the citizens are all fool and ignorant..
remember when the tide rises we all are going to drown..so keep playing dirty..good luck....i already lost everything material that i had... but my soul is clean..
