Here is a perspective on the fiscal cliff they plan on plunging into... The people impacted will be working people who pay taxes. The old and forty-seven living off govt won't see a thing. Working people will see a hit day one in their paychecks automatically, but the others monthly checks will remain the same, because the cuts are generic to programs and not specific. The feds will just run a bigger deficit. Sometimes I wish I could use cognitive discord to feel good about what you voted for.
