The kabuki dance continues
The nation’s long election ordeal is over. While that may be good news, we must temper it with the fact that Congress is now back in session. Perhaps they can now address the huge tax increases slated to automatically become law on Jan. 1 along with the spending sequester that almost everyone in Congress said they didn’t want when they enacted it earlier this year.
The so-called “fiscal cliff” is very much in the news with the Jan. 1 deadline looming for the automatic tax increases and sequestration spending cuts. Nevertheless, beyond the “cliff” is the “fiscal swamp” that is getting less attention.
