if, by deal, you mean they are close to agreeing to raise taxes for some, cut spending in some areas and, basically, push this off for another two
years, then, yes, it seems they are very close to a deal.
For many people, the cliff will not be avoided as the tax rates for many are still going up and they are still going to cut spending in many areas to
accomodate the minimal tax increases.
Also, there's been dead silence on the other issue of the day, the debt ceiling. Did our moron leaders elect to take out more loans to service the
already unpayable loans they took out to pay the prior loans which, oddly enough, were also used to service debt.
