The fiscal cliff was just another scare tactic in order to extend George W. Bush's tax cuts, which were a giveaway to the rich, while also further funding the war machine. The real problem is indeed in a broke financial system rife with fraud and no consumer confidence along with  a wholly outsourced manufacturing sector-- tie all this in with mega banks who were fully recapitalized by the government bailouts, which are now too afraid or playing it too conservative when it comes to doing their job, financing American entrepreneurship.Yes, were talking about the same financial players caught neck deep in "AAA rated" sub-prime debt-- talk about an oxymoron. The problem is that the majority of lending managers are completely inept and couldn't  tell a hawk from a handsaw.
