Why aren't the fiscal cliff talks on C-Span?


The economy is of top importance to everyone. Why are we letting these talks go on behind close doors with a few supposed leaders of our country? Hello even if you taxed the wealthy 100% you wouldn't get more than 2 trillion dollars. The debt is 16 trillion that needs to have interest payed on it. Operating costs for the government isn't even figured in.

    What we are seeing is grandstanding and political posturing. I would like to see some serious talks.

    Economics works similarly to your and my budget. You simply can't spend more than you make forever.
