    Can a deal be reached?

      Hell no. It's all shibai, kabuki politics. Probably a dodge or blind for some other odious bill to  pass on New Year's Eve. It's done every year's end when nobody is looking.

      Congress passes bills like Bubba passes gas.http://morallowground.com/wp-content/uploads/constitution-burning1-300x199.jpg

      Ironically the fiscal cliff will cause arguments of both left and right to be implemented automatically.  Both sides just can't stand that the other side will get some of their conditions.  In a normal world this would be called a compromise.
      When the cliff happens, taxes will revert to higher amounts taken from all tax payers.  Also, automatic spending reductions will happen across the board. 
      Both factions are getting what they want except they can't stand the thought that the other side will also get what they want.
      Personally I am sick and tired of watching our government acting like a bunch of spoiled brats arguing in their playpens.  Sickens me.

      It looks like we may have a short term deal, or band-aid, being ushered in in the nic of time...However, this really is only buying two months, but on a positive New Years Eve note, maybe this will help them "learn" to work together...and as Don pointed out, stop acting like spoiled brats:)
