It is imperative that ALL Americans understand the impact of the upcoming "Fiscal Cliff." I've made this illustration to help everyone understand the issues.
The stock market is currently being impacted and will continue to be impacted until Congress Compromises.
Why is the Stock Market impacted? Because investors become nervous when there is indecision (as we experienced during the Debt Ceiling discussions) and when they become nervous, they move their investment dollars out of the stock market and into other types of investments.
It is very important that we support OUR President and OUR Congress in reaching a Compromise within the next few weeks. Republicans MUST listen to the voice of the American People and allow Tax CUTS to continue for ALL UP TO $250K and only End those for $$ above $250K. We ALL will be asked to support Reductions to various Programs. Let's listen to their discussions and support Compromise.
