Fiscal Cliff

Monday, December 31, 2012- 01:00 p.m.

Enough already.

Go off the Fiscal Cliff. Please hurry and press the gas pedal, because all the droning on is becoming pretty nausiating.

For all the political moaning and belly-aching put forth on this issue, it must be good medicine for the country.

Imagine politicians without any money to spend. What a concept!

Something the Fiscal Cliff delivers in a dose of desperately-needed medicine. Yes, higher tax rates for all combined with cuts in federal spending. A antibiotic prescription any doctor would prescribe.

The U.S. Congress set this action in motion more than a year ago, when it thought neither party, or the President, would ever let it get this far.

Remember the negotiations over that pesky national debt limit?

Ultimately, it will be republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives that will make the final call on any desperately-crafted deal to avert trigger spending cuts and tax increases.

Here’s hoping there is no deal.
