Sudden stop

To the Editor:

“Fiscal cliff”? Is this some kind of sick joke? 

We stepped off the edge of that cliff years ago and our elected representatives are just now realizing it? 

Where have they had their heads inserted all this time?

We’ve been in free fall for several years! Like the saying goes, “it’s not the fall that hurts, it’s that sudden stop at the bottom.” And it’s gonna hurt big time!

I predict the Democrats will get the money they’re after. More dollars to squander on new vote-buying (oops, I mean socialist) programs!

Kiss your assets goodbye as the government tries to pay off the debt.

Actually, the government probably hasn’t paid anything toward the principle for a long time, just the interest!

Hope you’re proud of who you voted for.
