  • It should be both. They need to learn to work together for the good of the country and not the good of their party. Personally I don't think we need to raise the debt ceiling anymore. We already owe more then we can ever repay and one day it will be called in. Hack and slash time.

  • It is the fault of those who won't compromise and personally I see the Republican willing to make concessions but the Democrats barely budging. I don't think one side should have to give up everything.

  • According to all polls: majority will blame GOP for Fiscal Cliff Failure.


    Next week everyone here will have at least 2% less in your pay check.

  • Both. Only exceptionally stupid people will attempt to blame it on one side or the other.

  • I agree. But the party of blame will have a higher chance of losing the 2014 elections.

  • Seriously? It doesn't matter who is really the most at fault. The republicans will get blamed.

  • The Tax Policy Center says that on average, taxes would go up for every income group, from the poorest taxpayers to the most wealthy:
    •Americans in the lowest 20 percent of the income scale could pay an average of about $400 more in taxes.

    •Middle-income households could pay about $2,000 more in taxes, on average.

    •The top 20 percent of taxpayers could pay about $14,000 more a year in taxes, on average.

    •The 1 percenters could pay an average of $120,000 more in taxes.

    Many people are going to be very angry.

  • We may all be angry but perhaps that's not a bad thing to happen. Perhaps it's time for us to fall off and receive a wake up call that everything in life costs. From the poorest to the richest. We have borrowed way beyond our means and if we don't do something soon then one day the holder of our notes will call them in and want their money.
