Going over the cliff: What changes, what doesn't

New York (CNNMoney) - Yes, Virginia, there still could be a fiscal cliff deal by the end of this year. But given how things unraveled in Washington this week, there's also a good chance the country could go over the cliff for a time.
The good news: It won't be the end of the world.

    What changes is that the Republicans prove themselves once and for all to be useless and worthless as "leaders" for our great nation. We go over- they are toast.

    "The good news: It won't be the end of the world. "

    translation: "Hi, we're CNN and up until the GOP/Teatrolls shot themselves in the face by blowing up negotiations with this Plan B nonsense, we wanted you to believe that the Mayans may have been right...and that the fiscal cliff was what they were talking about. Now that the GOP/Teatrolls blew it, however, we're running damage control for them."

    For every action there is a consequence. The actions in Washington that divided America are the result of the policy by politicans to use hate to divide America.
    First it was to hate Bush. Then hate Wall Street. Then Insurance companies.
    Now hate success. Reward failure and punish those that succeed.
    America is reaping the results of these policies.

    True, Sniffit. I always thought the Fiscal Cliff was a media construct anyway, but it has been amusing to watch the sudden turnabout in the coverage on this, from hysteria to "not the end of the world". I guess they had expected Obama to cave to Boehner on everything.

    I swear so many people just took on more and more debt. Bought things u didnt have money for so you charged it. Look thats your personal business. But now you guys are in your 40'S and 50'S and I love you all, but why must you make us pay just because you never learned to save and invest? your house was to big and your car was fancy.you spent your life trying to look and act rich. and at the end of the day your broke,and now you hate the rich and want them pay for your poor fiscal situation. thats a shame.
