Bill Clinton: Congress will punt on fiscal cliff

(CNNMoney) - Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that lawmakers will most likely put off making a set of crucial spending and tax decisions until 2013.

"[Congress] will probably have to put everything off until early next year," Clinton said during an interview with CNBC. "That's probably the best thing to do right now."

    It isn't hard to make that call. I just hope that the Bush tax cuts don't get fully extended. The wealthy need to pay more because they can afford it and got most of the cuts.
