Fiscal bunk


The story dominating the news today is the fiscal cliff. Unless there is a grand bargain between Republicans, who tried to hold up the government over the debt ceiling, and an administration trying to put the economy back on track, we fall off. Watching this political theater, with a super committee that failed to make the grand bargain, and the looming disaster intended to force a bargain, would be entertaining, if it wasn’t proof that this Congress is hopeless.
