I think we will have a deal as long as the house agrees for increasing the tax for folks who make over $500 to $1M. I am not expecting any other major cuts, except some cuts on defense, payroll deductions, etc.

If GOP is smart they can go for a "Grand Bargain", however, I doubt it because there is not enough time and everyone wants to cut a deal before Jan 1st.

I was hoping for a fiscal cliff. Because I am not hoping any major economic impact and it will be addressed eventually. However, it may offer us an opportunity to buy stocks on "bargain".
