As mad as hell…

… is how you should be. Regardless of your politics, it is important that you take a step back and think one moment about what EXACTLY is happening when the two words “fiscal cliff:” are mentioned. There is a clear explanation of the situation here.

The people who were voted into office to represent the American people are posturing and arguing about something that could and should have been sorted out a long time ago. The Senate and Congress Members are protected from the real world with the above typical privileges they get along with their salary and the position they hold. Most people are actually ill informed regarding what they DO get so let me try and clear this up a little… here. While generous it is not stunning and, yes, they DO pay into the Social Security system. What is clear is that they are using their time (the time any American taxpayer pays for) to barter for deals instead of approaching the pending tax realignment.

So, rather than over-dramatizing the situation, why on earth do they not get down to it and sort things out? It is not rocket science… here.
