Will the Fiscal Cliff Send the Country into a Deeper Recession
I’m so sick to death of congress. We the people elected these clowns and they are acting like idiots. They can’t come together and get this Fiscal Cliff problem solved. President Obama put to congress a $1.6 trillion over the next 10 years and a tax rate increase on income above $250,000 a year which would be 39.6 percent. The Republicans need to stop acting like crybabies and put a reasonable solution on the table. I think that the top 2 percent of Americans need to start paying their fair share and stop being so darn greedy. The free ride is over! Why can’t they see we would not be having this problem, if they had not been so selfish? The Republicans and that Bush character got us in this chaos in the first place. Can’t they see that a tax increase on the middle class would be terrible? This would mean a tax increase of $2,000 and $2,400 a year. This would put more of strain on their finances. The $600 billion cuts in Medicare and other programs will also be very bad. The elderly can barely afford their medication now. My mother-in-law needs our help each month to get all the medications she needs. I want to know, what are the other programs that are going to be cut? The Republicans need to work with the President to fix this problem, because everyone is going to be hurt by this. I know I don’t want to go into a deeper recession. We’re trying to get over, the one we are already in. I think that it will hurt the United States economy.
