Fiscal Cliff Talks Still at a Stand Still

The plan is to go over the cliff and blame the other party. Lets face it budget cuts aren't going to happen and taxes need to be raised, there ae not enough rich people to get the needed revenue from. The parties will play politics until the nation crumbles.

As Speaker John Boehner said last week, this is a stalemate. Both Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Speaker John Boehner made appearances on Fox News Sunday yesterday with two very different views on how to prevent going over the fiscal cliff on January 1. Geithner said the White House has offered a very detailed plan (even though it has zero spending cuts), while Boehner said fiscal cliff talks are going nowhere, that President Obama wants to "ramrod a deal through," and that Obama has offered a "non-serious proposal."
