    It’s like a fiscal chasm.

      I’m not sure if “chasm” is a good description. Honestly, despite all of the scary statistics that studies throw at us, I think that things aren’t as bad as it may seem. And as for the apparently imminent “fiscal Cliffpocalypsemageddonacaust”, I think it is actually being hyped up to be scarier than it actually is. Basically, fear-mongering. Sure, there will be major cuts and possibly significant tax hikes, but in all honesty, I think that is probably the best deal that Congress came up with in regards to fiscal responsibility.
