Lets say you work for a day and get paid 200 dollars. The next day I stop you at the front door and give you 200 dollars to go home. In both cases you have 200 dollars to spend, but can you see what is different with these scenarios?
With the Redskins playing the Monday night game and the National's still not having made a deal with their 1st baseman, Adam LaRoche, there's not much to think about here in Our Nation's Capital other than that pesky fiscal cliff.

Depending on what comes up in your Google search for "What will be the effect on GDP of the fiscal cliff" you get answers ranging from a drop of about 1.4 percent (NASDAQ) up to four percent (Washington Post).

Most of the guesses fall in the 3 - 3.5 percent range.

No matter how much the economy...
