Well for those Americans out there in the pit, the time is running out for the politicians to reach a deal before we go over the fiscal cliff.

Any think washington can reach a deal?
What do you see happeneing if we go over?
Are we screwed?

I think Washington is incapable of reaching any kind of decision anymore. Let alone with haste.

I don't know what's going to happen next.

It's just another scare tactic. Remember that whole fiasco about the 'debt ceiling' a couple months back?

Probably. But they reached a deal weeks before it went into affect.

I do agree with the eGraham though that Washington is incapable of doing shit.

This. Nothing will change so significantly that people will actually get up and do anything because that would threaten the people who are in power and the people in power are making far too much money to let something like that happen.

Just the ones on an extension, the ones who really need to get off their lazy asses.

You can't generalize like that. If that was the case, the extensions wouldn't even exist. So many hard-working people have lost their jobs since the fall in 2008, even those who are financially well-off, and it's only becoming harder to be re-employed. People on extension could very easily (and now more than ever, be more likely to) need it dearly.

What on earth is a fiscal cliff and what are you guys doing walking off it?

Not really quite sure. All I know if that taxes will skyrocket, unemployment benefits will be canceled and some other stuff. Basically make the economy worse as the media puts it

If you go out everyday to look for work and you can't find a job in 22 weeks then there is something seriously wrong with you.

Here's my solution strap c4 to their necks. If they don't reach a deal they all die. Let's see the petty pissing match then. I wish I can get paid $150,000.00 a year not do my job.

and i suppose everyone on welfare is worthless scum who is slowly killing the planet with their lazyness, right? what makes me laugh is when people bitch about people who use welfare but defend the current system in place (ive actually met countless people who think this way).

and for the record, finding a job has never been a problem, finding a GOOD or reliable job, that will actually keep you alive (or possibly a family alive, which is the case with many) right now, not so much...

Nothing real will get done about the deficit. It would be far too politically unpopular for the government to go do something like slashing spending or hiking taxes on the level necessary to eliminate the deficit from the budget and consequently plunge the US in a greater recession than what was seen after the housing bubble collapse and credit crunch,

It's more of a matter of finding a job that pay a living wage, Walmart doesn't pay the bills. Also seriously all this over a 3% tax increase that twe wealthy are not going to pay anyway through loopholes anyway.

Are you really assuming that I (or anyone) would compare unemployment to welfare? Talk about apples to oranges.

If we go over the fiscal cliff, our economy will bounce back. The stock market WON'T crash, hell most of the affects won't be felt for months, but in the end the economy will still bounce back.

If you're on unemployment in Oregon you have to apply to three jobs a week. If you don't your unemployment is cancelled and you have to pay back the weeks you falsely claimed. If people are on an extension it's because there are no jobs they can find, not because they are lazy or unwilling.

Reports are showing that the House passed the fiscal cliff deal previously approved by the Senate. Now it just goes to the President to be signed.

was i the only one wanting to go off "the cliff"? people pointing out the CBO's predicted 9.1% unemployment rate were so short-sighted. the same report said if we went over the cliff and stayed there we would be down to 5.5% unemployment within a decade and with a much healthier economy.
