Given how this has been proven repeatedly over the past 5 years, with the financial panic and then the debt ceiling crisis, there should no longer be any argument about this.
Junk/ small cap/ weak players outpace quality on recovery and vice-versa when we have issues.

This is already happening. If you see the price of GRT.PR.H is falling steadily while other better quality issues managed to fall relatively less.

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".
