We've been hearing about what happens in our government on January 1 for months. The Bush era tax cuts will expire, extended unemployent benefits expire, the Farm Bill becomes a problem and the clock runs down on our ability to pay our bills.
The wealthy are probably a little irritated but not worried about their next meal or how they will make their mortgage payments. Those that have a few dollars in their savings for a rainy day are probably a little worried but hoping things get resolved sooner than later. Those that live from paycheck to paycheck are likely beginning to tremble in their boots. Those that are unemployed are probably a nervous wreck.
Well, I really hope they work this thing out. But it is going to the wire. What do you think? Do you think our elected officials will reach an agreement before Jan 1?
