Fiscal cliff

There's a fiscal cliff
They're rushing towards it
They'll be no more benefits
Just loads of tax hikes

They've got to get together
To sort it out forever
Put politics behind
Focus on what's right

Do they have a clue
All that is at stake?
Not just for the US
But for all of us today

Please take it seriously
Sort out all your policies
Support the really poor and
Ignore the power houses

See the cliff ahead
Build a bridge instead
We're all looking at you
Please be careful what you do

See the cliff ahead
Build a bridge instead

Powerful words... I hope it happens. Happy New Year, Emma!

unfortunately, most policymakers, around the world, have a knack for betraying a our's to the hope of a much needed change.

Interesting how the "solution" is always to tax the poor and how opposed they are to having the rich pay their fair share. Sigh. Argh. I wish so much they would build that bridge - and they'd better hurry up!

I heard on the news today that the US could be facing another recession - not good news for the new year.
