I hope they fail as well. I'd also like to see our bond rating go to junk status and taxes to go up to 100% This would get everyone's attention as Obama-phones are disconnected, World of Warcraft servers go down and television channels go from 200 down to 0. I mean its better to die quickly than to mess up the world bleeding to death.

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.
