The only answers that I can think of for this question is - A milk cliff is probably in the mountains somewhere, and dairy farmers who live there dispose of their bad milk over that cliff. It could also possibly be where the dairy farmers left their gates open and the cows wandered to close to the edge of the cliff and accidentally fell off.
Along with the fiscal cliff there could be a milk cliff if agricultural programs aren't addressed. With all the talk of the fiscal cliff, it doesn't appear to be a priority. Personally, I have always hated milk but understand that if prices on it were to rise, a lot of people already living on the edge will have that much more irritation or inconvenience as a result.
While the Obama administration fights with Congress over solving the fiscal cliff issue, there’s another problem swiftly approaching the edge in the form of a farm bill from 1949, that needs to be reformed by Jan. 1. Otherwise, notes the New York Times, a farm law from the days of yore will inflate the price of milk from about $3.65 a gallon to $6 or as high as $8.

Is the Fiscal Cliff really a bad thing?I read somewhere that the fiscal cliff is really a fiscal hill and that even if we let all of the Bush era tax cuts expire and had all of the budget cuts of the sequestration, there would still be a 450 billion dollar deficit next year. What is the solution?

Will the fiscal cliff debate have any impact on the middle class?With all the talk and drama in government about the fiscal cliff all I hear about is rich people. Does the "fiscal cliff" impact anyone other than the rich?
