We keep hearing that if we go over the fiscal cliff the average family will inherit a 2000 bump in annual taxes. If this means 100 million families pays 2000 extra a year it would generate 2 triilion in ten years. Heck our Govt almost spends that much each year. So it isn't that we don't have enough money, our govt just spends way too much and Obama won't even think of cutting his pet programs to keep his loyal believers happy. We are in trouble unless Obama comes off his hi horse. I would be willing to lose some of my retirement through Social Security and I'm willing to wait longer for Medicare, is anyone else willing?
