Despite the fact that the world seems to care more about Petraeus’ affair than the impending fiscal disaster, there is a clock ticking for when Congress will need to reach an agreement about how to reduce the United Staes’ deficit.
CNN explains that “[i]n a post-election survey concerning the fiscal cliff conducted by Pew Research Center, about half of respondents believe Congress will fail to reach an agreement to reduce the nation’s deficit compared to only 38% who said a deal will be met.”
And if we do fall off the fiscal cliff, the majority of respondents said they would blame the Republicans for getting us there.
What do you think? Will we fall off the fiscal cliff? If so, who’s fault will it be?
Even more importantly, what do you believe should be done to help resolve the conflict, as well as help reduce our deficit?
