The economy didn’t just shrink, it’s falling off a cliff long-term

How could the economy fall off a cliff so steeply in the 1st Quarter of 2014? A steep decline in health care spending, lower participation rate and decreased self-employment equate to a long-term increase in taxes and massively more debt spending. Ultimately the middle class will be the most hurt by this outcome.

Timeliness is everything in a Senator

We honestly are not upset that Senator Gillibrand provided such a disrespectful response. We are upset that Sen.

Final act of the 112th Congress: House passes fiscal cliff deal

The fiscal cliff has not been averted, but diverted. The debt ceiling has come and gone with no doubt that it will be a central point of contention before the 1st quarter ends. The country remains fiscally mismanaged, and not a single elected official has the ability to compromise and create a consensus on how to even slow the rate of monetary instability.
