Take this to the bank, our mental midget of a President and a dysfunctional Congress will once again kick the can down the street. Bone up on IRS AMT rules and regulations, everybody who pays taxes will now mysteriously contribute to this Federal "slush fund".

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but fiscal cliff discussion between Republicans and Democrats has already started and will continue after the Holiday weekend. As you can imagine things aren't going so well, which means we are more likely to see some kind of deal not in the next couple weeks, but just before or on Christmas.

The opening round of negotiations this week between White House and senior GOP congressional staffers left both sides pessimistic about their ability to reach a quick deal on averting the fiscal cliff, according to sources familiar with the talks.
