Hey, Geneva! What Do You Think About the Fiscal Cliff Deal Emerging Dec. 31?

Reports: President Obama might be ready to make an announcement.

The Los Angeles Times and many other sources are reporting Monday that a deal is emerging in the Senate that could result in a short-term solution to the year-end “fiscal cliff.”

In broad strokes, it looks like taxes would be raised on folks making $450,000 or more a year.

Vice President Joe Biden stepped into the picture and has an agreement allegedly with Republican Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell that could pass Congress in the hours remaining before a midnight deadline.

What do you think? Is it better to go off the cliff or make a deal? Is this proposal right for America and folks who live here in Geneva?

Why does't the Congress just reissue the legislation as it stands for another year? In the meantime they can work on a new plan. No elections for them this year to worry about!

If there are no significant spending cuts let the government go off the cliff. We can not leave our grandkids and great grandkids a debet that they can never repay just because we want to live the good life.

Let it happen. It's what we need to do--cut spending & raise taxes. We got ourselves into this mess, and this is a necessary solution to get ourselves out. We've already had all the legislative battles concerning priorities, so just cut everything 10% across the board. Raise all taxes ten percent and shut up about it, already. Bunch 'a whiners! ;)
