Not me. I might be Canadian but I know that the affects would have reverberated throughout our own economy. They are a large trade partner after all. A dive off the fiscal cliff would not have been good for our long-term economic health.
like it or hate it that is what this country needed... those monkeys in power are only prolonging the inevitable the Cliff provides what both parties want at the same time. it'll be hard, it'll be difficult but we would have survived it! if we don't do this it'll just get worse and worse with every day, month, and year that goes by... I say we take our lumps now while we can still recover after it's done and get it over with already before it gets to big to recover from...
instead we got tax hikes regardless of the bush tax cuts being extended. we get effectively no spending cuts and the Debt Ceiling is starting to rear it's ugly head again..
WE CAN"T KEEP THIS UP D: and those nuts in power have failed us time and again only making it worse with every delay
But the politics in the US are more silly than europe is used to. The whole fiscal-cliff business seems a bit like a joke here. Or gay marriage. Or military. And so much more. And carusmm has got at least the CNN and the NYT behind me there.
America would survive the fall from the fiscal cliff by first shoving down several other countries to serve as its meat cushion. Then, whilst recovering from its badly scraped knee, it would spread its misery to any country it can get its hands on, all the while bitching about how bad it has things. The United States, I'm afraid, is not a beast that can be killed to death.
