  • It’s Your Move!

    Tuesday 11th of December 2012 4:37:59 PM

    The countdown has begun! Democrats and Republicans have about 20 days left to come to some sort of solution regarding the “Fiscal Cliff.”

    For months, discussions have gone back and forth, and little has been resolved. Consequentially this has resulted in heated exchanges between President Barack Obama, who has taken lead role for the Democrats and Republican House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, who is the chief negotiator for the GOP.

    Just last Sunday, the two men congregated for an impromptu White House Meeting. Although little details were made public, from what was gathered it appeared that unfortunately not much was accomplished.

    According to White House spokesman John Earnest as well as an adviser of John Earnest “This afternoon, the president and Speaker Boehner met at the White House to discuss efforts to resolve the fiscal cliff. We’re not reading our details of the conversation, but the lines of communication remain open.”

    On Monday statements from either side made it obvious that a clear core tax and spending issues continue to remain unsettled. Both sides did say that they are waiting for more details from the opposing sides.

    As if playing a tactical game of chess, the democrats and republicans are saying to each other “your move!”
