eat up any new taxes waged.
But, the worst parts will be the things that have nothing to do with fiscal policy at all.
We've seen them do this with the Patriot Act, the Bailout for Banks and Insurance Co., The NDAA, and
on and on.
They have made people believe that any bill they sign will be better than the Cliff.
I'm prepared for a very ugly shoe to drop out of this legislation.
You bring up an excellent point. There are some nasty little riders on the fiscal cliff bill that have nothing to do with our economy, and everything
to do with our enslavement and destruction, such as the "Monsanto protection act", which basically allows GMOs to flood our food supply and we
won't know, and can't do, anything about it. They spent a lot of money lobbying to get the rider put on the bill, because they know it will pass,
and people will be so distracted, they won't pay attention to the evil little cling-ons that come with it.
