We rarely heard about the fiscal cliff and the debt crisis before the election because Obama's propaganda media machine kept it out of the spotlight and instead covered it up and focused on attacking Romney for how much money he makes, pays in taxes and other stupid BS.
They never wanted to talk about the economy, the fiscal cliff coming up and the inevitble failure of Obama's economic policies. Then Benghazi came up and as soon as Romney pointed fingers at Obama or the terorrists he was attacked for making the deaths of four Americans political. When in reality he had a right to condemn the terrorist attacks that left four Americans dead.
Obama's economic and foreign policies have been a complete failure and now the DEMs are pushing tax increases on the rich to solve their spending habits. Increasing taxes isn't going to stop the spending spree they are on. They also want to increase the debt ceiling again, this is essentially giving them an unlimited credit card limit. How much longer will we be able to keep this up....China isn't going to be able to afford to keep loaning to us soon. There economy isn't exactly doing as great as it could, but they are doing better than us. In the meantime, we are heading over a cliff on the same path as Greece, Spain, and France. CA is the first state that is ready to fall off...how soon before more states, especially the DEM controlled states going to fall into bankruptcy like so many cities in CA are??
Obama is doing nothing to fix the economy. Instead he wants to increase spending, raise taxes on the rich and continue on an unsustainable path. Once Obamacare kicks in completely we can expect more employers to reduce work hours or layoff employees. Larger corporations will also be hit with the highest tax rate of all other countries. This will create a greater outsourcing of jobs, which Obama claims he doesn't support. But, under Obama companies like GE have already created more jobs overseas and in China than in the US.
