Obama CAN'T fix it. That ball is in the legislative branch's court. Call or write your Congressman and Senators if you're really concerned.

If you're REALLY REALLY concerned, vote them out of office in November for not doing their job!-Paul

Can Obama fix anything or is he just as he referred to himself "eye candy' Dont worry I already voted!

the potential for an end-of-the-year uproar when some $109 billion in across-the-board spending cuts kick in unless OBAMA and Congress reach a deficit-reduction deal to avert them. Bush-era tax cuts also expire at year's end.

President Obama is passively allowing us to go over a fiscal cliff.
The cuts could slice some 48,000 federal workers from civilian defense jobs and 229,000 from federal jobs

our legislators now play a game of brinksmanship, they wait for either a fiscal crisis or a deadline to leverage the minority opposition into submission..both sides do it..and the American public suffers
