Fiscal Cliff, the Video

By :: October 3rd, 2012

The fiscal cliff is big (more than $500 billion in scheduled tax increases in 2013) and complicated (involving literally dozens of tax provisions, not just the long-debated 2001-2003 tax cuts). If you haven't found time to read our full report on the fiscal cliff -- or even if you have -- you might enjoy this short video highlighting our main findings:

P.S. For links to all of TPC's fiscal cliff products, including a new interactive graphic, see our Fiscal Cliff Tax Topics page.

    Putting these graphs in dollar terms, especially per week, would show why the working class has less of an incentive to worry about the fiscal cliff than the wealthier donors who fund Republican candidates (which is why I predict a deal before the election). The GOP is playing chicken. The question is, when will they flinch.

    I’ve said it before: TPC needs to publish a serious study of how horribly regressive would be a government default on its debt. Any policy that avoids default could then be compared to the actual alternative, default, rather than to the fantasy that default can be avoided by magic.

    If the TPC wants to climb out of the partisan ditch it has driven itself into, this study would be an excellent start.

    Not to hijack this thread, but, I’m looking for an agent/advisor that was named as my parents’ retirement manager. I’m totally stuck here because I want to use the same advisors that my parents did I’m not seeing them in any of the local directories online. Carlton Financial Group – 106 Mission Ct #701 Franklin, TN 37067 phone (615) 794-2536 Can someone recommend an industry association or directory that makes it easy for me to find the agent?

    After a soulless drive inthe sight of the plume of smoke staining a cloudless blue still ineradicableI taught a 10:40 class. Our text, as luck and God would have itwas “The Dream of the Rood,” an early medieval English poem about the crucifixion from the cross’s perspective, wherein it describes its role as at once murderer and victim. The crucifixion subsumed the sober sorrow of the morning, and the poem rendered more painfully complex what was taking place only a few miles away. The event, the poem and the cross remain twined in my mind to this day.

    Why people still use to read news papers when in this technological world the whole thing is presented on net?
