It seems convenient that Congress has to vote on ways to avoid going over a fiscal cliff. After all, one would have thought that the so-called Supercommittee would have helped us to find a solution to our overspending woes. This didn’t work, and I was certain it was doomed (and a joke) from the beginning.
My husband and I were discussing after watching tonight’s evening news whether or not the fiscal cliff conversations were part of a manufactured crisis. I mean, we are in a new year, and the news cycle is slow over the holidays. Probably, the media and Congress supposedly struck a deal to create a crisis to make people fear the fact we are going over the cliff. Now, I am not saying the fiscal cliff isn’t real, but it seems odd how all of a sudden we need to avoid going over the edge, when in fact, we probably have been over the edge for quite some time.
However, we have learned who the real conservative leaders in the House and Senate are, and they decided not to vote for legislation that would raise taxes on Americans. Perhaps, they realize that spending cuts need to made to address the government debt.
Just a poll and leave a comment: Do you think the fiscal cliff situation is a manufactured crisis or was this just destined?
