Sobering article in Politico that points out that according to Speaker John Boehner, he and President Obama haven't spoken about the fiscal cliff in nearly four months! Seems our elected officials are waiting for the outcome of the election before deciding to get serious. Wonderful. Let's see, that will give them, oh, about 55 days after the election to get it all figured out. No worries, right? Oh boy, November and December are sure going to be fun.
