kw: politics, economics
I say, let the Fiscal Cliff happen. Then maybe (barely) the legislators and our paper-tiger President will be motivated enough to pass some tax laws, and perhaps even some spending cut laws, because they can always make the retroactive. Right?
This charade is actually going to go on for another 364 days, at the very least.
Anybody that voted for an incumbent: This is all YOUR DAMN FAULT.
