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.
C-Span would probably pay handsomely to broadcast negotiations on avoiding the “fiscal cliff.” Fortunately, it is not going to happen. There are too many crucial issues at stake. Cameras would promote grandstanding and political posturing when compromise and softening positions are required.
I am not sure what is your question for me. If the tv station C-Span doesn't cover the fiscal cliff talks, they don't have the permission to do so. With regards to your comment regarding the national debt, it doesn't sound as simple as that. It's a very tricky thing to run a super-power country.
