The funny thing is, the recovery is pretty much unstoppable. The 'cliff' would be a major stumbling block but the CBO predicted that even if we go over with no deal, the economy is still due to add 9.6 million jobs in the next 4 years. So no deal would mean a loss of up to 3 million jobs and another recession, but the economy will still chug along. Barry's work during his first term, much to the chagrin of anti-American Civil War reenactor neo-secessionists such as some on this board, saved us from another great depression and put us on the road to a strong recovery.
